KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee wide receiver Josh Smith has been arrested for an alleged domestic assault after a fight with a roommate.

Knoxville police say roommate Kennedy Foster had a bloody face and swelling to his left eye, lips and nose after a fight in their home on Friday night. Police say Saturday that Smith was released on bond.

Keith Stewart, a lawyer for Smith, says Smith is cooperating with police in the investigation.

Tennessee athletic department spokesman Tom Satkowiak said “we are aware of the situation” and had no further comment.

Smith, who will be a fifth-year senior this fall, caught 13 passes for 97 yards and one touchdown last season. He has made 18 career starts.
