Just after 9 p.m. Saturday night, Baltimore County Police officers were flagged down by the general manager of the Green Turtle located in the 400 block of York Road 21204. The manager told the officers that there was a female “passed out” in the bathroom of the restaurant.

The officers walked into the women’s bathroom and saw a female vomiting in the sink. There was also a man in the bathroom holding the woman, so that she did not fall to the floor. Officers requested the Baltimore County Fire Department to respond to provide medical care to the woman.

Officers asked the man in the bathroom to leave so that medical personnel could attend to the sick woman. The man did not leave, and officers asked him two more times to leave before placing him under arrest.

The man was transported to the precinct and processed. He was identified as James Michael Smith. He was charged on a criminal citation with failure to obey the lawful order of a police officer and released.

James Michael Smith identified himself as a player for the Baltimore Ravens.
