A woman went to Lancaster’s police station Thursday to report the alleged sexual assault. She told officers the DJ “committed sexual offenses against her about 10 times” at a house in Lancaster starting when she was 15 years old. By the time she turned 18, the woman claimed Smith started to rape her.

WJTL-FM released a statement regarding the arrest.
