Fairfield Police report that Robert Michael Smith, 42, of Kenwood Avenue, was arrested early this morning, Dec. 19, and charged with driving under the influence, failure to obey a traffic signal, failure to keep a drug in its original container, possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the report, a patrol officer noticed Smith’s vehicle stopped at the intersection of Grasmere Avenue and Kings Highway East shortly before 12:30 this morning, impeding traffic on Grasmere. The officer then watched as Smith drove through a red traffic light at the intersection, and subsequently pulled Smith over.

The officer patted him down for weapons and found two smoking pipes, marijuana in a clear plastic bag, and 17 white round pills marked “54/142,” also in a bag. The officer additionally discovered valium in a proper prescription bottle in Smith’s possession.

Smith was released on a written promise to appear, with a court date of Jan. 1, 2015.
