If you thought it was about cheating you were wrong.
The arrest affidavit said Gaspar gave this account at Florida International University police headquarters:
The two argued through the day over the attention Smith was paying her and their relationship. While in Smith’s dorm room and “feeling extremely emotional and stressed,” she told police, she boiled a pot of water. Then, she walked over to Smith and poured it on him.
When Smith didn’t react strongly enough for her, she started hitting him with her open hands, she told police.
The 6-3, 232-pound Smith from Ocala West Port High finishes his FIU career fifth in career receptions (175), career receiving yards (1,936) and third in touchdown catches (17). He holds the FIU records for touchdown catches in a game (three) and a season (eight), sharing the latter with wide receiver Thomas Owens.
Smith is an NFL draft prospect, but this certainly isn’t going to help his stock.
