Alum Connor Smith Arrested for Allegedly Sexually Assaulting a Teenage Girl The incident comes a little over a year after Smith was arrested in December 2021 for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl. He was charged with four felonies, including sexual battery and rape, according to Indiana court records obtained by PEOPLE. Court documents, first obtained by The Times of Northwest Indiana, alleged that Smith forced a 16-year-old girl whom he met online to perform a sexual act on him after she got into his vehicle. The documents stated that he then took her to a hotel room, where the girl said he raped her. Authorities told PEOPLE the alleged incident occurred in Lake County, Indiana. Smith was taken into custody in Cook County, Illinois, after authorities in Indiana issued a warrant for his arrest. In addition to rape and sexual battery, Smith was also charged with two counts of criminal confinement. Smith appeared on season 3 of Are You the One? in 2015, where he and the other contestants tried to uncover their "perfect match" (as established by producers) in order to win $1 million. During episode five, Smith did uncover his perfect match, though the couple ultimately split following the show.
