Former Buckeye Cited For OVI, Posession Of Drug Paraphernalia

Westerville Police

Franklin County Sheriff's deputies have cited former NFL and Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith for possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a vehicle under the influence. Deputies say the 33-year-old was asked to move his car to a diversion area at a Columbus checkpoint Friday after they detected a marijuana odor. Deputies say Smith refused to take field sobriety tests. Smith was issued a summons to appear in court. Smith was charged with drug and alcohol violations following a stop in Westerville last year.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
