Tennessee Vols wide receiver Josh Smith was arrested early Saturday morning for domestic assault against his roommate. 

According to arrest records, KCSO sent an officer to UT Medical Center to investigate the assault. There the officer spoke with the victim and Smith's roommate, Kennedy Foster, and Smith. 

Foster told the officer that he and Smith had been drinking together before he went to his room. Foster then said Smith came and kicked in his door "out of concern" when Foster couldn't stop coughing. According to both men, Foster then started pushing or attacking Smith, which led to the fight. Smith said a third roommate later got involved, which is when he stepped back in to break it up. 

According to the deputy's description, Foster's face was "severely damaged." He suffered a black eye, swollen lips and a swollen nose. Smith had several scratches on his neck, cheek and nose. 

After interviewing both men, the officer took Smith into custody as the main aggressor. Smith was booked and is being held on $2,000 bond. 

His attorney Keith Stewart told 10News, "We understand the KPD policy regarding domestic violence, and we are going to avail ourselves of the system. We don't believe Josh has committed any crime. Josh has cooperated with law enforcement and will continue to do so fully."
Tennessee spokesman Tom Satkowiak responded to the arrest, saying, "We are aware of the situation involving Josh Smith, and we'll have no further comment at this time."
