Eric Smith's situation deepens

Hey everyone. As at least some of you know, an attorney representing an Auburn student who allegedly was struck by Auburn utility back Eric Smith has filed suit in U.S. District Court.

The plaintiff is Decari Jenkins, a fifth-year engineering student.

Here is Jenkins' account of what happened on the night of August 21, 2009.
  • He attended a function at the Lexington Hotel (you probably know it better as the former Best Western near College & University/Shug Jordan)

  • He was approached by ``two presently unnamed Auburn football players in a proactive and belligerent manner."

  • Jenkins' friend attempted to dissuade trouble by saying "we don't want any trouble."

  • "Immediately after making the statement, (The Friend) was punched by one of the Auburn football players and rendered unconscious with one blow."

  • The Friend was pulled aside by bystanders.

  • Eric Smith then approached and slapped a drink from Jenkins' hand.

  • ``Smith, with the aid of his cohorts, began to pummel (Jenkins) with hands and fists about his face and body."

  • Jenkins was able to elude the melee by fleeing down an outside stairway.

  • Jenkins went outside to make a call.

  • While standing near four Auburn Police Department officers, Jenkins then was struck in the back of the head by Smith.

  • "(Smith) then kicked (Jenkins), turned away from the officers and casually walked away as if nothing had happened, leaving Jenkins unconscious in a pool of blood."

  • One officer assesed Jenkins. One officer called for an ambulance.

  • Jenkins bled from a cut over his eye. He was taken to "the hospital" and was given medical care and was released the next morning.

  • Smith soon was apprehended by the APD.

  • ``The Auburn Police Officers were approached by Auburn football players wearing Auburn University attire who identified (Smith) to the officers as being a football player. They also inquired as to `what could be done.'"

  • Smith was charged with assault. He later filed a charge against Jenkins, which Jenkins' lawyer writes ``was later dismissed with prejudice."

  • Jenkins now says he "continues to suffer grievous and permanent injury as a result of (Smith's) actions."

  • The permanent injuries? Fourteen stitches have caused "permanent scarring to his face" and he claims to suffer from Post Concussion Syndrome.
    He claims the syndrome is causing an "altered gate" (I think he meant "gait"), inability to concentrate, headaches, sleeplessness, vertigo and nausea.


NOTE: I will be posting the lawsuit as soon as Blogger.com gets its act together and lets us post pictures again.

Has Eric still been granted youthful offender status?

I may have missed something earlier, but I never heard any other players mentioned in the incident.

prior thread, LT said, "We definitely don't have much behind out starting linebackers and secondary - What did we have for the UGA game, 3 healthy LB's? We would have to put someone out of position to fill a LB spot if injuries happened. That's lack of depth."

In the 1972 Iron Bowl,we started a TE at LB due to injuries. He even made an INT. We won the game becuase of coaching and talent, and perhaps a bit of prayer.

Yes, we lack depth now. But our more serious issue is the level of talent across the board.

I also WRK - At UGA in 79 & B'ham Iron Bowl '79 & '80.

Here is the post from the other threat THT...

JGT - That was your shortest blog post - ever- but its lack words is ripe with Substance!!!

It is shocking we are on pace for Worst of All time in Auburn lore. I was there Barfield's first year - it was mine too. I guess this Offense being able to keep pace has hidden the fact that we are giving up a TON of points.

Now on the depth issue JGT - I agree and disagree. We definatly don't have much behind out starting linebackers and secondary - What did we have for the UGA game, 3 healthy LB's? We would have to put someone out of position to fill a LB spot if injuries happened. That's lack of depth. But we can run in second string of down linemen... Problem is, they ain't SEC talent - they are Depth, but don't have the level of talent we need.

It is going to take a few years to get where we need to be depth wise. We will need to get some talented JUCO's to fill the gaps in the near term while we redshirt some of our more athletic freshman to be "couched up" to provide needed depth for the future.

It ain't a quick fix. I just hope the AU nation has the patience to ride this out. Just because UA-T did in 3- years doesn't mean we can. It may take 5 years to get where we need to be talent and especially depth wise. the better teams always have 5th year seniors dominating their rosters.

Just my opinion.

Also, what is I heard that we lost around 28 recruits over the last 3 year of Tub's rein for one reson or another? That is is whole recruiting class!! There is the depth issues.

The video makes no difference.

What Smith may have done was pretty weak -- people should be punched in the face in my book -- but seeing video of it won't make it worse.

FSJ-I didn;t listen to boogbomb so I don't know al that was said, but surely a lawyer would know that crusiers have video cameras, wouldn't she?

So he pleads guilty to disorderly conduct, and she/they say it was a beat down. I wasnt there so I do no tknow, but I am positive lwyers never lie, unless their lips are moving. (no matter who they represent)

6:15 PM

Dumb question perhaps, but why does the lawyer go on the radio to talk about this?

PF's ratings must be slipping. He's stooping to having lawyers on a "sports" talk show. I read where someone called in a asked why sue a college kid who has no money and the lawyer stated that he didn't have any money "YET" and that the lawyer stated she was not a UAT grad and that the plantiff was "referred" to her.

I guess the other two players involved aren't being sued because they don't have big salary potential, so they must be off the team.

I have no problem with the substance, just the timing of all this. Finebaum has had this up his sleeves for quite awhile and has been hinting at it. He has planned to always drop this info this week. Nothing like stirring a crap storm up.

Also, i'm glad it is one guys word that will get played, whether right or wrong without any real substantial evidence at this point.

Dismissal with prejudice basically means a decision was made. So the case is over. If it was dismissed without prejudice, the case could be brought back up.

Basically it means the judge decided he did nothing wrong.

It's what they are. It's what they do. I've seen it in different ways, and in different contexts. Now, they have a willing partner with Finebaum.

Decari Jenkins has the right to file suit, and if Eric Smith is responsible for the actions in the suit, he'll answer for them.

On their face, I view most suits with a healthy dose of skepticism. We shall see.

Finebaum's teasers tell me that this has been in the works, and he's been in the knowledge loop at a minimum. The timing is quite scripted.

It's who they are. And that's why I hate who they are and what they stand for.

As far as Ms. Crew and Finebaum having an association, I don't really care about that.

I'm sure they know each other and I'm sure he knew Ms. Crew was representing Eric Smith.

Still, this doesn't seem like a very big story overall. I wrote about it. I will write more about it, yet it's not like the NCAA is going to come calling because Eric Smith and some of his teammates beat someone silly.

If this happened between Student A and Student B, nobody would care. The truth is that skirmishes like this happen all the time.

Should skirmishes like this really happen regularly, the people responsible should be in prison. I view college as where someone finds their place in this world. It may be as a doctor, and engineer, or an inmate. Everyone should be where they belong, and people like that are no different. I can not condemn Eric Smith because I don't know the facts, but someone here is responsible.

ehyou...there's a fine line with brisket...

Some folks make it taste like pot roast...which isn't good for BBQ.

Others make it too dry...way too dry.

Most brisket in Alabama fits into one of the two categories I just described.

If I had to pick one place to eat brisket based off of what i have seen on TV it would be Louie Mueller's BBQ in Texas.

The contests I have entered have brisket as one of the four meats. IMO, it is the hardest one to cook and score well with.

Wake, where's this bbq joint you went to today?



Agree on the brisket. As a non-swine guy, I order it almost exclusively (some good chicken out there that gets me sometimes- and beef ribs can make my heart flutter). Very few places get it right. Some stumble into it. I eat at this one place in Miami a couple of times a month. It comes out perfect 1 out of every three times. The other two fit in one of FSJ's categories. It's disappointing when overly dry, but the sauce makes it okay. Pot Roast times just piss me off. I can't even taste the wood at all.

a good brisket starts with selecting the perfect cut. Unlike pork, where you can get away with it by being a good cook if you happen upon a less than perfect shoulder, you're doomed from the start if you don't pick from the right cow.

Is Memphis's new basketball coach old enough to shave? Or vote?

Auburn has an outfield. People drink there. It's a great ballpark...just thought I'd complicate things.

Welcome MLF.


Ah, what a day to be talking about BBQ as i'm about to catch a plane to Houston on a trip I didn't know about yesterday at this same time.

Got to love plans on the run.

Good morning, Hotties! Welcome, MLF. Like Kathy said, we need all the voices of female persuasion we can get!

All this Eric Smith stuff the week before the Iron bowl is mighty fishy.

Love the fact that Finebaum describes this event as 'chilling' in a way that armed robbery with a handgun (Jeremy Elder), swinging fists with police and security guards (Rashad Johnson), and selling cocaine on campus out of an SUV (Jimmie Johns) were not.

i love how in the article that Jenkins' lawyer Crew states that Eric only got one game as punishment. apparently she's a ****ty lawyer b/c she doesn't know facts. i hope Eric has 200 yards of offense & 3 TD's vs. Bama.

"I don't know what they did internally," Crew said, "but I know I've seen pictures of how badly Decari was injured. I don't think Eric Smith missed but one game."

the Chiz already gave him his punishment. this is bs.

Ahhh. She thinks it's her duty to make sure that he's punushed enough, because the criminal justice system and Auburn University apparently aren't good enough at it.

I SUPPORT THE CHIZ.

I SUPPORT ERIC SMITH.

DAMN THE INFIDELS!

HATE!

Welcome MLF.

I echo Scottie B's support comments. Fights happen, it's almost a rite of passage. I've been in a few but never once thought about filing a lawsuit afterwards. Lame.

Keep Hate Alive.
