On Tuesday afternoon, Dallas police responded to a 911 call to Smith’s North Dallas home, where siblings showed up to “harass and torment” the offensive lineman “in the pursuit of collecting financial gain,” according to the police report.
Smith, 21, has three sisters and two brothers. Two of the sisters were among at least three people who showed up at Smith’s home Saturday and Tuesday, sources said. The police report did not name them.
It was the latest in a string of events over several months in which family members tried to harass Smith for financial benefit, according to sources.
Over the summer, Smith obtained a protective order against his stepfather, Roy Pinkney, and mother, Frankie Pinkney, to keep them from having any contact with him, directly or through his siblings.
Frankie Pinkney, who lives in Southern California, didn’t return several phone calls seeking comment.
Smith, 6-5 and 308 pounds, is being represented by Dallas attorneys Royce West and John Schorsch.
“Lesser means were tried, and they weren’t successful,” Schorsch said of the protective order. “You can use your own imagination as to what it took for a guy that big and that imposing to be that worried.”
Smith’s parents own a cleaning business in Riverside, Calif., near their home in Moreno Valley. The protective order prohibited them from attending Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, Calif., in late July and August even though their son practiced each day only about a two-hour drive from their home.
During training camp, one of Smith’s family members had to be removed from the practice facility, according to Cowboys sources.
Smith declined to comment Wednesday afternoon when approached in the Cowboys’ locker room at Valley Ranch.
Joe Panos, Smith’s agent, said he was aware of the situation.
“This is a family matter, a private matter, and we’ll address it when we feel like it’s appropriate,” Panos said.
