During a traffic stop in Smithfield, the local police detained a 30-year-old motorist, Kristen Simone Gullant, on charges of driving while intoxicated and minor child abuse. The incident occurred around 11:27 pm on January 28, when a tan 2006 Mercury was pulled over on West Market Street, near Wilson’s Mills Road.
