The Associated Press reports that Smith was released hours after the arrest on $20,000 bail. TMZ reported that Smith got into a heated argument with his friend Georgia Ling and pinned her against the bathroom wall of the hotel. However, Ling released her a statement saying that the events have been blown out of proportion.
"Mike and I did indeed have a heavy argument but it saddens me the way things are being reported and the way it was handled by the police. At no point did I feel I was in danger, otherwise I would've called the police myself, which I did not. The police were called by others not present in the room who mistakenly perceived the argument to be something other than what it was. When the officers arrived I tried to assure them there was no real issue, but they proceeded to arrest Mike," she said.
Smith also released a statement denying any assault. "Georgia is a friend of mine and we had a loud and heated dispute. That is all. At no time did I assault her. I am not guilty of the misdemeanor charged against me."
