He went to the apartment and the resident said that he was in the apartment. Smith was found in the bathroom with the shower curtain wrapped around him.
Wilder’s report states that he saw in plain view a Xanax bar on the bathroom sink along with marijuana. Also, there were lines on the sink where Smith allegedly admitted to crushing up the pills and “snorting.”
As Wilder was escorting Smith out he asked if there was a weapon in the apartment, because he had seen several bullets in the bedroom. Smith allegedly pointed to a rifle in a corner of the living room.
