Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith was taken into custody and charged with a misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The newspaper reports that Smith failed to obey a lawful order of a police officer after authorities arrived at a bar after they were summoned to a call about an unconscious woman in the bathroom. Smith was reportedly with the woman and said he was trying to assist her at the time and would not move when police told him to step aside so the EMT’s could attend to her. Smith was later released and was issued a citation with a court date in the near future.

“We’re gathering information about this,” Ravens senior vice president of public and community relations Kevin Byrne said.

It’s been a rough off-season for the Ravens. This makes the fifth arrest of a Baltimore Ravens player this off-season: Lorenzo Taliaferro, Jah Reid, Deonte Thompson and the biggest name of them all, Ray Rice.

Smith has a history of trouble off the field in his collegiate days that resulted in him getting taken below the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Smith has four interceptions and 110 combined tackles in his first three years in the league and has been a positive presence in the secondary for the Ravens.
