Towson (MD) police allege Ravens CB Jimmy Smith was attending to a woman who had overdosed on cocaine before his Saturday night arrest.
Smith was "trying to help" the woman, who ODed at a Towson bar. He "disobeyed orders" when medics arrived. After numerous expletives, Smith "played the 'I'm Jimmy Smith. I play for the Ravens' card," and told police "You're only doing this so you can get on the news," according to Baltimore reporter Paul Gessler. Smith has only been charged with a misdemeanor peace disturbance.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith was arrested for disorderly conduct Saturday night.
Police responded to a call about an unconscious woman in a bathroom at a bar, and Smith was cited for failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer. Smith was reportedly trying to assist the woman but wouldn't move away from her after police repeatedly asked him to do so. Smith was released from custody at 11:15 PM Saturday night and faces a misdemeanor charge. He's the fifth Raven to be arrested since last season ended. Off-field issues led to Smith falling to the 27th pick in the 2011 draft. Smith will celebrate his 26th birthday later this month.

Jimmy Smith shadowed Calvin Johnson whenever he lined up outside on Monday night.
The Ravens typically just play sides with their corners, but they installed a new strategy to face Megatron. Smith, the No. 27 overall pick in 2011, played a very strong game. Johnson dropped two wide-open passes and finished with six catches for 98 yards, but Smith was step-for-step with him on a majority of the plays. It's a notch in the belt for a guy that had already graded out as a top-25 corner in Pro Football Focus' rankings coming into Week 15.
