UNI Linebacker Jordan Smith Arrested on Assault Charge
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) Northern Iowa linebacker Jordan Smith has been arrested for assault as a result of a fight over the summer.
Smith allegedly assaulted a man on July 25 in Cedar Falls. The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that Smith was arrested Monday and charged with assault without intent to injure.
The 21-year-old junior from Humboldt, Iowa, was suspended and missed the Panthers loss at Iowa State last week.
Coach Mark Farley says in a statement released Tuesday that Smith will be allowed to return to the team this week.
A phone number for Smith could not be located.
