Man jailed after hitting NPD’s Sgt. Stein with his car

Yesterday when Norwood police opened the car door of a 22-year-old man asleep at the wheel, he awakened, slammed the car in reverse, and knocked Sgt. Thomas Stein to the ground. Today, Jeffrey Smith is behind bars charged with felonious assault, failure to comply with police, resisting arrest, and operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Bond has been set at $225,000. Sgt. Stein may have escaped serious injury, since the Enquirer article doesn’t say anything about him being taken the hospital.
