More bad news for 103.7 The Buzz host Tommy Smith, who was arrested today around 2 p.m. and booked on several charges, including failure to stop after an accident, DWI, refusal to submit to a chemical test, drinking in public and possession of a controlled substance.

The arresting officer's handwritten report is a bit scrawled, but it looks like an Arkansas State Trooper was dispatched just before 2 p.m. today to the scene of a hit and run accident at I-430 and Col. Glenn Road. A witness told the trooper that a black Dodge Durango had crossed the median then fled the scene. The trooper was able to catch up to the Durango and pull over the driver at I-630 and Fair Park. After stepping out of the car, the officer said, Smith appeared drunk, and admitted to drinking two pints of liquor and taking Xanax pills, some of which were found in his pocket.

This is the latest setback for Smith, who has struggled with substance abuse in the past. In September 2010, he collapsed and suffered a seizure while doing a live, on-air appearance at a Sherwood car dealership. Smith later said that the collapse was the result of him trying to go "cold turkey" from alcohol addiction.
