WESTERVILLE, OH (WCMH) – Former Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith appeared in court Wednesday morning after a weekend OVI arrest.
During his appearance, Smith’s attorney requested the case be postponed until April 20.
Smith is expected to plead not guilty to charges of OVI, improper display of license plates, and possession of marijuana during his next court appearance.
Police said Smith, 31, was pulled over at around 2:30am Sunday on South State Street at Hoff Road for improper display of license plates.
Dash camera shows Smith going through several field sobriety tests.
According to the police report, Smith failed the field sobriety test, and his blood-alcohol level was .143. Police also found a marijuana cigar in the car.
Smith was a quarterback for Ohio State from 2002 to 2006 and became the school’s seventh Heisman trophy winner after the 2006 season.
Smith’s attorney, Brad Koffel, filed a motion on Tuesday asking for a continuance in the case. Court records did not indicate whether that request was granted.
