The police report states the driver’s airbag was deployed and the windows were down.
Smalley told police he was driving home from downtown where he met some relatives for beers and hit a car, but he emphasized he was not drunk. Smalley said he called AAA and, according to Smalley, they told him to file a police report in the morning. Smalley told police he planned to report the accident in the morning.
Smalley’s breath sample registered .150. He was arrested and cited for first-offense OWI, hit-and-run unattended vehicle; failure to notify police of an accident; and operating left of center.
