Saints' Player Dismissed from Domestic Battery Charge

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish District Attorney's Office has dismissed a misdemeanor domestic abuse battery charge against New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith.

Assistant District Attorney Janet Perrodin tells Associated Press the charges were dismissed Monday after Smith completed dozens of hours of community service and participated in counseling. A grand jury indicted Smith in March 2011 on misdemeanor charges of domestic abuse battery and public intoxication stemming from his Nov. 27, 2010, arrest by the Lafayette police. 

Officers arrested Smith after he and his wife, Racquel, got into an argument just after 2 a.m. when they were leaving a nightclub in downtown Lafayette. Perrodin said his wife requested the charges be dismissed against her husband.
