Smith situation starting to gain clarity

Sophomore tailback Eric Smith, whose status on the team is unclear, is expected to turn himself in to police on third-degree assault charges. The Opelika-Auburn News broke the story, citing the victim's mother, Sandra Jenkins, and Assistant Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson.

Smith is facing a Class A misdemeanor charge on top of his Class C misdemeanor for disorderly conduct.

According to the story, the victim was treated at East Alabama Medical Center for a laceration over his left eyebrow.
