More details of Zach Smith's alleged stalking, harassment emerge from Courtney Smith's protection order request
Last week, a Columbus TV station shared its findings of alleged stalking, hacking and other harassment by Zach Smith after reviewing police records. Now Deadspin has published Courtney Smith’s protection order, offering more details in Smith’s own words along with analysis from Diana Moskovitz.
In the protection order, Courtney Smith describes unwanted sexual advances made by Zach and describes how she uncovered a webcam under couch. She also says Smith has harassed the men she has dated since their 2016 divorce. Courtney Smith alleges that Zach has sent threatening social media messages to those same men and has even come on the property of at least one boyfriend. She also says that Zach Smith would FaceTime their kids on an iPad in an attempt to figure out Courtney’s exact location and anyone else she was with.

Courtney accuses Zach of taking photos of her and her kids in her backyard from a distance without their knowledge. She also told police about a time Smith allegedly showed up intoxicated on her property at 1:30 a.m. and attempted to enter her home through the back door.
The protection order, from last month, has Courtney Smith expressing concern that Zach Smith’s behavior would become worse because of the media’s knowledge of his violating the trespass order (presumably the May incident which resulted in a citation) and the fact that she believed his job was at stake.
Courtney Smith proved to be right about Zach’s job. He was fired by Ohio State on July 24.
