Running back Eric Smith, who was dismissed from the Auburn football team Monday, was arrested for domestic violence following an incident on Feb. 22, according to a report by the Opelika-Auburn News.
Smith was arrested at 11:15 p.m. and charged with third-degree domestic violence, according to an Auburn police report obtained by the paper. It is a Class A misdemeanor.
The report said Smith was sober and did not resist arrest. He was booked at Lee County Detention Center and released the next day on a $500 bond.
It is Smith's second run-in with the law. He was arrested for third-degree assault in August of 2009 after allegedly knocking a fellow student unconscious during a fight outside an area hotel. The case was resolved when he was granted youthful offender status.

The 20-year-old Smith, who also served an academic suspension for the Outback Bowl at the end of the 2009 season, was dismissed from the team Monday for a violation of team rules.
