Irvin Smith faces additional charges

February 17, 1996|By Kevin Eck

Former University of Maryland cornerback Irvin Smith, recently with the Baltimore Stallions, was arrested early yesterday morning in Gaithersburg on charges of stalking, two counts of harassment and telephone misuse. The complaints were filed by Smith's former girlfriend, Tracy Slater.

Smith, 28, was released yesterday on $2,500 bond and a trial was set for March 15.

In the statement of charges, Slater alleged that Smith phoned her six times Feb. 2 at her home and at her job to discuss a reconciliation. Two days later, Smith allegedly showed up unannounced outside her house. Slater said she called 911 and Smith left before police arrived.

It was the second set of complaints Slater had filed against Smith in the past two months. In December, he was charged with malicious destruction of property -- for allegedly scratching Slater's car -- and harassment.

In a court hearing Jan. 30, Smith agreed to pay Slater $414.08 for damages to her car. The harassment charge was dropped.
