Bowling Green Man Convicted of Assaulting Conservation Officer

A Bowling Green man is convicted of assaulting a conservation officer with the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

After a two day trial in Allen County, Charles G. Smith is found guilty.

The charges stem from an incident that happened in July of 2006.

According to the Department of Fish and Wildlife, Smith's father was charged with boating under the influence of alcohol.

When officers attempted to arrest Smith for alcohol intoxication, he jumped into the lake and surfaced about 20 feet away.

Smith was convicted of assaulting a police officer, alcohol intoxication, disorderly conduct and fleeing police.

The Dept. of Fish and Wildlife says the assault occurred when Smith struck the officer with a chair at the Allen County Detention Center.
