This hasn't been the best week for Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith.

First, a tree fell on his house. Now, he finds his name on the Ravens offseason naughty list as he becomes the fifth player arrested this offseason.

On Saturday, Smith was arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct after an incident at The Green Turtle in Towson. Officers said Smith failed to comply with their orders as he assisted an intoxicated female in the bathroom as she become nauseated.

(Don't even start making Ben Roethlisberger comparisons here.)

Police arrived at the scene after receiving a tip that a woman was unconscious in the restroom. Once they arrived, Smith was in the restroom assisting her and was asked multiple times to step aside and stand in the hallway. Smith failed to comply, became argumentative and was subsequently arrested.

According to the Baltimore Sun, police said after Smith was arrested, he became cooperative and was issued a citation and released at 11:15 p.m.

Smith's off field concerns were a major reason he fell to the Ravens with the 27th-overall pick back in 2011. While at Colorado, Smith was cited for third-degree assault, underage drinking and reportedly failed a drug test. Saturday's event marks Smith's first arrest since being drafted by the Ravens.

Had four of his teammates not already been arrested this offseason, Smith's arrest wouldn't be a big deal at all. Regardless, now that Smith ultimately did something worthy of an arrest, this will be blown out of proportion and the Ravens offseason looks even worse because of the sheer tally of poor decisions leading to an arrest they've had this offseason.

UPDATE: According to a police report, the woman Smith was with Saturday evening was found with a substance believed to be cocaine in her purse. She has not been charged with a crime at this time.
