Colorado State suspends player after arrest

Colorado State forward Greg Smith has been suspended for three games following his arrest on a misdemeanor charge of harassment and domestic violence, according to The Coloradoan.

"As a program, we take this matter very seriously," Miles said in a statement issued Tuesday through the Colorado State University athletic department. "I will stay closely involved as the situation unfolds with both the legal process and the university's student conduct process. At this time, Greg has been suspended for an additional three games, and I will continue to evaluate his status as more information becomes available."

Smith, according to statements by witnesses and victims in the police incident report, shoved a 19-year-old woman that was identified as his girlfriend and another 19-year-old woman during the argument, knocking one woman to the ground in the parking lot. The verbal confrontation apparently turned physical when Smith tried to retrieve his keys from the girlfriend, who insisted he had been drinking.

Smith, 19, averaged 7.1 points and 3.8 rebounds last season and is a part of the sophomore class that Miles hopes will help the program take the next step in competing in the Mountain West.

Smith, who missed the team's two exhibition games, will serve the three-game suspension on top of a two-game suspension because of academic issues, according to The Coloradoan.
