Smith came to the residence and was trying to get the victim out of the house to fight. Smith was taken into custody and transported to headquarters where he was later released after posting bond.
Readers are reminded that an arrest or charge does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination. For more police blotter news, read tomorrow's print edition of the Belleville News-Democrat and return to bnd.com.
