MIAMI COUNTY — A Troy man was sentenced this week for assaulting a police officer last month.

Jason E. Smith, 36, of Troy, received one year of probation, a fine, and suspended jail time for first-degree misdemeanor assault, amended down from fourth-degree felony assault, and fourth-degree misdemeanor disorderly conduct in Miami County Municipal Court.

On May 29, Troy police responded to South Crawford Street on a report of an intoxicated male subject acting disorderly. According to Miami County Municipal Court records, Smith was taken into custody after this reported incident as he continued to act disorderly after being warned for disorderly conduct. He was “belligerent” and threatening the officers with harm. He also reportedly “lunged” at one of the officers while “making a barking sound.”

While in custody, Smith stated he could not breathe and that he had heart problems. When a squad arrived, the officer removed Smith from the police cruiser, and Smith attempted to jerk away from the officer and later kicked the officer when the officer subdued Smith against the cruiser, according to court records.

Smith was then taken to the Upper Valley Medical Center for an examination, during which time he was verbally abusive to hospital staff and repeatedly told the officer that he was going to kill him.
