USD head men's basketball coach Lamont Smith was arrested Sunday in the Bay Area and is facing three domestic violence charges, according to public records released by the San Francisco Sheriff's Department.

Allen Lamont Smith, 42, was arrested at Oakland International Airport prior to the USD basketball team's flight back to San Diego following a 64-61 win over the University of San Francisco in last night's regular season finale.

Officers were dispatched to the team hotel near Union Square late last night on reports of a domestic violence disturbance.

The victim told police she was intimately involved with Smith. She was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

USD released a statement to 10News, stating "We are aware of the report of allegations related to Lamont Smith. We have very few details at the time, but we will be gathering information and will be commencing an investigation into the matter."

Smith is facing three charges in San Francisco: domestic violence, assault with force likely to commit great bodily injury, and false imprisonment.

A USD alum and former basketball player at the school, Smith is nearing the end of his third season as head coach of the Toreros.

He is married and has two children, but the victim's relationship with Smith remains unclear.
