As the late, great Paul Harvey always opined, and now you know… the rest of the story.
On Monday, Auburn confirmed that running back Eric Smith had been dismissed from the football program for violating unspecified team rules. Today, we learn that one of the Tigers’ team rules is “avoid domestic violence charges”.
According to multiple media outlets, Smith was arrested Feb. 22 on a charge of third-degree domestic violence. The police report stated that Smith was arrested at 11:15 p.m., and was sober and did not resist arrest. So he’s got that going for him, which is good.
No further details of the events that led up to the arrest were made available.
The arrest was Smith’s second during his time as a Tiger. In August of 2009, he was charged with third-degree assault after becoming involved in a fight with a fellow Auburn student.
