Ex-Ohio State QB Troy Smith cited for paraphernalia, OVI
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Former Ohio State quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith has been cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a vehicle under the influence at a sobriety checkpoint in Columbus.
A spokesman for the Franklin County Sheriff's Office says the 33-year-old Smith was asked to move his car to a diversion area at the checkpoint Friday night after deputies detected the odor of marijuana. The spokesman says paraphernalia was found during a search of the vehicle and that Smith refused to submit to field sobriety tests.
Smith was not arrested and instead was issued a summons to appear in court.
Smith won the Heisman in 2006 during his senior year at OSU, leading the team to the national championship game that season, where the Buckeyes lost to Florida.
