Running back Onterrio Smith has been sued by a woman who has allegated him for sexually assaulting her last year. An interesting incidence about this episode is that the 21-year-old woman has not been identified in the lawsuit, for fear of retaliation. The only identification is that the lady lives in the Twin Cities. When she was physically attacked she received injuries and the worst of all humiliation. Now, to somehow compensate the situation she is seeking $150,000 in damages. Though the mental trauma she has received is lifelong. Moreover her physician has described her as an ``individual with disabilities.'' She has also formed mental impairment stemming from fetal alcohol syndrome. During the alleged assault, it has been reported that the woman met Smith through a friend, who was in an adjacent room in the Eden Prairie apartment.

It is a matter of shame for the professional player who has left no stone unturned to bring the notoriety to the baseball fraternity by committing such heinous acts. To add more to his reprehensible acts Smith was also suspended for the season weeks after he was trapped at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with several vials of dried urine and ``The Original Whizzinator,'' which is promoted as a way to beat drug tests.
