Report: Zach Smith Arrested for DUI in 2013

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--A new report says former Ohio State Wide Receivers Coach Zach Smith was arrested for DUI back in 2013.

The information was obtained by the Toledo Blade, showing Smith was pulled over by Dublin Police on the morning of February 23rd, 2013, along State Route 257, originally for speeding.

Smith reportedly refused to take a breathalyzer test, and arresting officers say he failed a field sobriety test. He originally posted 10-percent bond, and was released to his father.

In April of that year, he was found guilty of a lesser misdemeanor charge of physical control, was ordered to serve three days in jail, pay a fine, and have his license suspended for six months.

Smith was fired last month after his ex-wife, Courtney Smith, filed a civil protection order against him. An alleged domestic violence incident from 2015, reported by reporter Brett McMurphy, led to the placement of Head Coach Urban Meyer on paid administrative leave, as the university investigates what he knew about that alleged incident, and when.

Smith is expected to be interviewed by the investigative team at Ohio State Monday or Tuesday.
