NFL Suspends Premiere Cornerback

OWINGS MILLS, Md. --  Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith was suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's personal conduct policy, the league said Tuesday. 

The suspension comes after a petition filed by the mother of his first child that accused him of domestic violence.

The NFL found evidence of "threatening and emotionally abusive behaviors" by Smith toward his former girlfriend, according to a statement released by the team.
