Broncos' Rod Smith arrested on domestic violence charges

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. -- Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith was arrested Monday on charges of third-degree assault and harassment after an altercation last week with his common-law wife, authorities said.
Smith, 29, surrendered to the Douglas County Sheriff's Department on Monday morning. He posted $5,000 bail and was released, sheriff's Sgt. Attila Denes said.
An affidavit filed in Douglas County District Court alleges Smith choked, beat and shoved 27-year-old Jami Mourglia during an argument Wednesday at their home in Parker southeast of Denver.
The affidavit describes Mourglia as Smith's common-law wife. They have two children.
If convicted, Smith could be sentenced to two years in prison and fined $5,000.
A judge issued a restraining order Monday directing Smith to stay away from Mourglia.
Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano, reached at the Super Bowl in Atlanta, said he had not heard of Smith's arrest.
Smith has played in the NFL for five years, all with the Broncos, and posted more than 1,000 yards receiving in the 1999 season. His 80-yard reception in Denver's NFL Championship win over Atlanta last year tied a record for the second-longest touchdown catch in Super Bowl history.
