Charge against Ravens CB dropped

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith can concentrate on rehabbing from a foot injury this offseason now that a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge has been dropped.

Smith, one of the Ravens best defenders, had been charged as a result of an incident in July when he ignored police orders to leave a bathroom. Smith, according to police, was helping a woman vomit into a sink. The woman was later charged with cocaine possession.

Smith was arrested, cited and released after resisting repeated requests to step aside, according to the Baltimore Sun.

“Jimmy is thrilled to put this case behind him,” attorney Warren Alperstein told the Sun. “It’s a relief for him to have this over with.”

Smith suffered a Lisfranc foot sprain, curtailing his season after eight games. Smith recorded 28 tackles and an interception.

The four-year veteran has compiled 140 tackles, five interceptions and 32 passes defended.

“Jimmy remains fully focused on his recovery from his injury, “Alperstein said. “He looks forward to getting ready for next season.”
