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.
