Tennessee wide receiver Josh Smith was facing charges of domestic abuse against his roommate and good friend Kennedy Foster. Foster was also going to seek $3 million in a civil lawsuit if his demand of $875,000 for compensatory and punitive damages wasn’t met. However, it seems that the whole thing has been dropped and there will be no charges at all:
Court costs turned out to $330 according to Bleacher Report. The incident occurred back in May when Smith allegedly assaulted Foster after the two got into a fight. From WATE.com, here is how the incident was described in a report:
“Police said the fight started after Foster locked himself in his bedroom. Smith told police he became concerned for Foster’s well-being and broke down the door. When he entered the room, Smith told police Foster ‘looked at him as if he was an intruder,’ then a fight broke out. ‘We fought, and he got the better side,’ said Foster.”
Smith is the Vols’ leading returning receiver with 58 total receptions for 721 yards and five touchdowns in his career.
