Lovie Smith’s Son Mikal Arrested, Accused of Pimping in Arizona
Mikal smith – son of former NFL head coach Lovie smith – was arrested in Arizona this week after officials said he was pimping, TMZ Sports has learned.
The 43-year-old – who served as an assistant coach under his father’s direction with the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Bucs – was booked Thursday on a series of disturbing charges.
Officials tell TMZ Sports … Smith deals with everything from pimping (another word for pimping) to collecting income from a prostitute and sex trafficking.
He also faces charges of money laundering and conspiracy.
The details surrounding the case are unclear – we are working on it.
Mikal was a former college football player at the University of Arizona at the time before becoming a coach.
He worked as an assistant coach with the Chicago Bears when his father was in charge there … and then followed Lovie to the Tampa Bay Bucs, where he worked with defensive backs.
Mikal also coached at Trinity International University before working at the NFL level.
Attempts to reach Smith for comment have so far been unsuccessful. We will report back if we hear anything.
Our sincere thanks to
