Arizona graduate Tommy Smith was arrested on multiple charges in January 2009 after allegedly punching his girlfriend when leaving a party, breaking her nose, driving her away against her will, taking her phone off her and abandoning her at the roadside by a lake.

Smith signed with Liaoning in China in November 2008, but played in only two games (totalling 2 points and 12 rebounds) before being released. A couple of months after he came back to America, Smith was arrested on multiple charges after allegedly punching his girlfriend when leaving a party, breaking her nose, driving her away, taking her phone off her and abandoning her at the roadside by a lake.
