On December 22 at 1:04 a.m. DFC R. Weems responded to the area of Riverview Drive and Vista Lane in Lusby for the report of a single motor vehicle crash.  Upon arrival he observed a vehicle stuck in a ditch. 

The driver, later identified as Teresa Gail Denton-Smithson, 56 of Colonial Beach, Va., was asleep inside the vehicle.  After being awakened, Weems detected the odor of alcohol on Denton-Smithson’s breath. 

Denton-Smithson became combative, exiting the vehicle and attempting to walk away while cursing at Weems.  She then spit in DFC J. Hardesty’s face. 

She was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest and second degree assault. Case #12-79309
