The statement also claimed that Smith has "never been charged with an OVI or any other criminal offense" and that she made "concerted efforts to press charged of domestic abuse" against Zach Smith, a former wide receivers coach for the Buckeyes. The statment says Smith will fully cooperate with the university's investigation.
The 2015 allegation happened while Zach Smith was at Ohio State and he told multiple media outlets last week that he was on the road recruiting and was told by Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith to come back to Columbus after the accusation was made to police.
The lawyer for Courtney Smith said in a statement Tuesday that Courtney was not contacted by Ohio State University regarding the domestic abuse allegations against Zach Smith in 2015.
The attorney also said in the statement that Courtney Smith is grateful for the support she's received and shot down some instances of "misinformation that has been circulating".
Leveridge said that Courtney Smith will not comment on ongoing legal matters involving her ex-husband, including the pursuit of a civil protection order, and that her focus remains on "caring for her two small children and continuing her nursing studies".
