The Knicks and Miami just haven't been getting along recently.

It's where Iman Shumpert tore his left ACL and lateral meniscus, where Amare Stoudemire lacerated his left hand and where the team lost to the Heat in the first round.

Now, it's where J.R. Smith got arrested and released Thursday night around 8:30 p.m. in South Beach.

Sgt. Bobby Hernandez told ESPNNewYork.com that Smith was at 1620 Washington Avenue, the address of Fritz's Skate Bike & Surf shop. Police recognized him around 8:30 p.m. ET and knew they had a bench warrant pending against him.

According to Hernandez, Smith was not engaged in any illegal activity when he was arrested. He was then taken to a Miami-Dade County jail, where officials say he bonded out early Friday.
