State Sen. Virgil Smith was in police custody Sunday after gunshots were fired at a vehicle outside his home early that morning, according to a police source who asked not to be identified. Smith, 35, was taken into custody at about noon Sunday, the source said. More than one blast from a shotgun was fired at a 2015 Mercedes-Benz outside Smith's home on Wexford Street on Detroit's north side around 1 a.m., Detroit Police Chief James Craig confirmed. The woman who owns the car, identified as Smith's girlfriend and ex-wife, was uninjured. The vehicle was hit at least once.
You may be shocked, shocked! to find hypocrisy going on here.
Sen. Virgil Smith (D-MI) represents parts of Detroit, Dearborn and all of Allen Park. As a Democrat, it should come as no surprise that he is rated at 0% by the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Ownership. Smith has voted anti-gun since taking office in the House of Representatives back in 2003 to 2008, and now as a state senator.
