Smith admitted to officers on Monday that she takes numerous prescription medications and based on her recent history, officers had her perform a Field Sobriety Test. Officers, however, quickly ended the test when it was determined Smith would most likely fall and injure herself. When officers informed her that she’s under arrest, Smith became very upset and began resisting – kicking an officer in the groin at one point. Smith was charged with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer, and No Valid Driver’s License.
