Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith was arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct Saturday night stemming from an incident at a Towson restaurant.

Smith was cited for failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer. He became the fifth Ravens player to be arrested this offseason, following Ray Rice, Jah Reid, Deonte Thompson and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro.

The Baltimore Sun reports that officers were called to The Greene Turtle Sports Bar after the general manager reported that there was an unconscious woman in a bathroom.

Police arrived and found Smith helping the intoxicated woman in the bathroom. After medics arrived, officers repeatedly asked Smith to step aside and he refused to comply and said several times that he was helping the woman.

Smith became argumentative when they asked him to step into the hallway. He was eventually placed in handcuffs. Police said Smith was cooperative with officers after being arrested.

A first-round pick by the Ravens in 2011, Smith was released from custody at about 11:15 p.m. (ET). A court date is pending. The woman was transported to a local hospital.

Smith hadn't previously been in trouble with the law since joining the Ravens.

The Ravens exercised a fifth-year option for 2015 for Smith this offseason. He started all 16 games for the Ravens last season, recording 58 tackles and two interceptions.
