TAJ A FREE MAN

REGINA - A charge of aggravated assault against former Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Taj Smith has been stayed.

The judge agreed Thursday to the Crown's request for a stay of proceedings in the case.

The charge arose after a fight outside a Regina nightclub in August 2013.

Charges against two other former players, Dwight Anderson and Eron Riley, were dropped early in the proceedings.

Smith was released by the Riders in December after playing only three games in the 2015 season.

A stayed charge can be brought back within a year, but it's rare.

I feel bad for Taj. He just lost his only marketing opportunity from Co-op ..... Assault and Vinegar chips.

What an abuse of power, and a total waste of resources. To put anyone through this for years, only to drop everything, should be unacceptable. There should never have been charges.

Just saw Taj going to Winnipeg. He was getting gas at Esso in Virden, MB. Meeting with the Bombers!

I really hope Taj lands on his feet and finds a job in the CFL. It is totally shameful he has been going through this for so long.

Get a haircut Smith, your a washed up bum plus a total loser. Just be glad Immigration didn't put the mitts to you. £μ¿€ your a ugly a** dude-ette with long hair, nice if you would come to prison in the bear future.

What a shame. How much time and money is Taj out? Just over some Queen City street punk that needed punching out.

How much time and money are the "Riders" out defending this clown? Taj Smith a got damn embarassment to the Image of the Saskatchewan Roughriders football club. The club should seek legal damages.
