Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith will be arraigned Sept. 29 after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his sister’s boyfriend in Old Town Pasadena on the Fourth of July.
Smith, 30, allegedly beat the victim and stomped on his head near the corner of Arroyo Parkway and Colorado Boulevard, according to the District Attorney’s Office. He was charged Wednesday with one felony count each of assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury, prosecutors said.
He is scheduled to be arraigned in Pasadena.
According to jail records, Smith was arrested by Pasadena police at 2 p.m. Thursday. He was booked an hour later and his bail was set at $80,000. There was no immediate information on whether he has been released.
Smith faces up to seven years if convicted, prosecutors said.
Smith is a Pasadena native and attended William Blair High School. He is an eight-year NFL veteran, playing four years with the Miami Dolphins and three years with the Kansas City Chiefs before joining the Raiders last season. He played three seasons of college ball at the University of Utah, beginning as a wide receiver before transitioning to cornerback.
There was no immediate response to a request for comment from the Raiders. The team is scheduled to play the Los Angeles Rams in a preseason game Saturday in Oakland.
