Nearly Twice the Speed Limit Results in Arrest



On Friday, March 05, 2021 about 5:46 a.m. a LCSO deputy was dispatched to a call from an off-duty Carroll County officer who reported seeing a specific vehicle driving careless and imprudent at a very high rate of speed north bound on U.S. 65 in Carroll County.   Approximately 8 to 9 minutes later the LCSO deputy checked the vehicle on U.S. 65 at the Grand River Bridge at 119 in a 60.

The deputy made specific observation and was able to locate the vehicle at Casey's business near the south junction of Chillicothe at 5:56 a.m.  Investigation resulted in the arrest of Cole Smith, 21, Carrollton for the alleged 119 in a 60.  Mr. Smith was taken to the LCSO and processed.

Given the time of the call from unknown location in Carroll County and the time the vehicle was spotted in Livingston County just outside of Chillicothe suggests the vehicle had continued northbound at a high rate of speed.  Fortunately there was no accident and minimal traffic at that time.
