Saints player accused of domestic abuse and battery

LAFAYETTE, LA (WLOX) - Two days after the New Orleans Saints rallied to beat the Cowboys in Dallas, Saints defensive end Will Smith was arrested in Lafayette, Louisiana. Police in Lafayette say Smith and his wife got into an argument just after 2:00 a.m. Saturday while leaving a nightclub.

He is accused of grabbing his wife's hair and pulling her down the street. Police Captain Paul Mouton says the women's injuries were minor and that Smith has been charged with domestic abuse and simple battery.

Saints spokesman Greg Bensel says the team is aware of the arrest and the Saints security staff is looking into the matter.
