Former UCF star football player Kevin Smith was arrested in the Harris Corporation Engineering Center on campus on Wednesday, according to an arrest affidavit.

Smith, 28, played five years in the NFL for the Detroit Lions before returning to school at UCF. According to the arrest affidavit, Smith was arrested for resisting an officer without violence.


A UCFPD officer was investigating a crash that occurred over the past weekend involving Smith and realized with the infraction of improperly backing, Smith was also driving on a suspended license and left the scene of an accident without providing information, according to the affidavit.

According to the affidavit, when the officer approached Smith with questions about the crash, Smith replied that there was no crash. When the officer reiterated that there was a crash and that he had several citations to give to Smith, Smith once again said that there was no crash.

The officer then retrieved the second citation, a criminal violation for driving on a suspended license. According to the affidavit, when the officer started to explain the citation Smith stated that he had to go and walked away. The officer then told Smith to wait so he could give Smith the citations, but Smith kept walking, according to the affidavit.

The UCFPD officer then dropped the paperwork to the floor and seized Smith, arresting him for resisting an officer without violence, according to the affidavit.

Smith was taken to the Orange County Jail and held on $1,700 bond.
