Staten pulled up next to Smith's car and told her that he was calling police. Smith directed the girl to try and hit Staten's vehicle. He followed them into an AutoZone parking lot, where he managed to block the pair in. Smith doused Staten in pepper spray while he called the cops.
When police arrived they found Smith in a manic state and unable to stand on her own. She struggled with officers, but was eventually subdued and charged with drunk driving, child endangerment, reckless driving and assault for kicking a police officer.
