Wanted man arrested during a traffic stop

Oct. 30, 2013 @ 12:15 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A Huntington man wanted on multiple warrants was arrested Tuesday evening following a traffic stop at Charleston Avenue and Hal Greer Boulevard.

West Virginia State Police charged Donald Terrell Smith, 32, who is originally from Michigan, with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, driving on a revoked license for DUI, obstructing and second-offense DUI.

Troopers said they performed a traffic stop after noticing a vehicle driving recklessly near the intersection of Charleston Avenue and Hal Greer Boulevard. When they approached the driver, they could smell alcohol on his breath. A sobriety test showed a BAC level of 0.154 percent.

Troopers found $1,100 in cash and $700 worth of cocaine.

Troopers said Smith originally identified himself by another name, but they ran his fingerprints to find his true identity.

Smith was wanted on an active warrant by the U.S. Marshals Service for violating his federal probation.

Smith also had active warrants in Cabell County for obstructing, DUI, driving without a license and forgery of a public record.

Troopers said a passenger was in the vehicle, but that person is not facing any charges at this time.

Smith is currently in the Western Regional Jail on a $100,000 cash-only bond on the local charges; however, it is possible he will be extradited Wednesday for the federal charge.
