Former Ohio State quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith was cited with driving under the influence over the weekend in Columbus.
According to the Associated Press, officers from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office encountered Smith at a checkpoint in Columbus on Friday. After detecting a marijuana odor in the car, Smith’s vehicle was searched and paraphernalia was found and he refused a field sobriety test.
Smith was not arrested, but cited, for driving under the influence. He received a summons to appear in court.
Smith won the Heisman Trophy during his 2006 senior season at Ohio State, leading the Buckeyes to the BCS National Championship Game where they lost to Florida. After college he had a brief career in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers and a two-year stint in the CFL with Montreal Alouettes.
