Scott A. Smith Indicted on Weapons Charges
Smith's Tuesday court appearance has been cancelled
The current charges listed at the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas docket are a fourth-degree felony carrying concealed weapons (for the gun found on him), a misdemeanor carrying concealed weapon (for the four knives found on him) and a third-degree felony for having weapons under disability (for the gun on him as well as the ones taken from his home).
The prosecution is basing the weapons under disability charge on the claim that Smith has some kind of substance abuse issue.
Smith has been in jail — first in Westlake, then at the Cuyahoga County Jail since Aug. 7 — since his arrest. He is being held on $250,000 bond.
Smith's preliminary hearing, set for Tuesday, was cancelled. According to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office, his arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 27.
More details as they become available.
