State Sen. Virgil Smith, suspected of firing shots at his ex-wife's Mercedes-Benz early Sunday, was arraigned today on felonious assault, domestic violence and other charges in Detroit's 36th District Court.
A not guilty plea was entered by the court for Smith, who appeared in court via video. Magistrate Millicent D. Sherman set Smith's bond at $25,000, of which he has to post 10% to be released....
Smith told investigators it was the stupidest thing he had done in his life, according to police.
The shots were fired after the Detroit Democrat's ex-wife pushed her way into the house and attempted to attack another woman who was in Smith's bed, according to police. Smith told police she threw a chair at the windows of his house and he shot at her car.
