We have been discussing the opiate crisis that is destroying this country and countless families. A vivid display of the hold of these drugs can be found in the arrest of Chadwick Smith in Muncie, Indiana. Smith was arrested after an auto accident where he shot up with heroin while driving — leading to predictably tragic results. It is truly chilling to think of a person actually shooting up while traveling at high speed down a road.
Smith ran into a U-haul trailer after his car crossed the center line. Police state that Smith admitted to going to Dayton, Ohio to purchase the heroin. They found a hypodermic syringe in Smith’s vehicle after the crash.
Smith is now charged with possession of a narcotic drug, unlawful possession of a syringe, driving while intoxicated and public intoxication.
