Raiders cornerback Sean Smith is facing an assault charge in Southern California for an incident that allegedly took place in the early morning hours of July 4. The incident occurred July 4 in Pasadena's Old Town district, near the intersection of Arroyo Parkway and Colorado Boulevard, according to the DA.
Smith is also accused of the special allegation that he inflicted "great bodily injury" upon the victim, Santiago added. In his first season with the Raiders, Smith recorded 40 tackles and 2 interceptions.
It's already been a tough summer for Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith on the field; now, according to one report, it's been even worse off it.
His bail was set at $80,000 and his first court appearance is scheduled for September 29.
He pleaded guilty in 2015 to a driving under the influence charge in Kansas City and was sentenced to two years of probation.
The Raiders did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
If convicted Smith could serve seven years in jail, per TMZ Sports.
