Smith turns himself in

Auburn tailback Eric Smith turned himself in to Auburn police for assault charges Monday afternoon.

Assistant police chief Tommy Dawson confirmed that Smith, as expected, turned himself in between 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.

Smith was arrested Friday night and charged with disorderly conduct, a Class C misdemeanor. He was later charged with third-degree assault, which is a Class A misdemeanor.

Auburn police captain Tom Stofer said Smith was transferred to the Lee County Detention Center shortly after 2 p.m.

Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said Smith was booked into the facility at 2:40 p.m. Jones also said the 19-year-old Smith made an arrangement the municipal court for his $500 bond to be prepared and he was released in about an hour.

Smith is expected to appear in court on Nov. 5.
