Baltimore Ravens conrerback Jimmy Smith was arrested at the Greene Tutrle in Towson, Maryland and charged with disorderly conduct, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Police said Smith, 25, was cited for failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer.
The Ravens have released a statement.
“We’re gathering information about this,” Ravens senior vice president of public and community relations Kevin Byrne said.
The Greene Turtle contacted the police when they found a woman unconscious in the bathroom.

Smith told police that he and the woman had done a photo shoot together earlier in the evening, according to a police report.
Police said that after medics arrived, officers repeatedly asked Smith to step aside and he allegedly refused to comply and said several times that he was helping the woman. Police said Smith became argumentative when they asked him to step into the hallway.
According to the police report, Smith was told that because he wasn’t related to the woman and wasn’t helping her that he needed to leave so that medical personnel could attend to her and Smith replied: “I am helping her.”
According to the police report, Smith was asked three times by an officer to leave the restroom before being ushered out to the hallway. Smith allegedly cursed at the arresting officer and asked him “What the [expletive] are you gonna do?” When told again to leave, Smith replied: [Expletive] you. What the [expletive] are you gonna do?”
Smith was then arrested by the police and said, “The only reason you arrested me is so you could get on the news,” per the police report.
Smith wouldn’t have had to worry about getting arrested if he had just listened. At least that’s what it sounds like.
