Third DWI leads to prison: 2018 offender crashes into tree in College Station – WTAW

In May 2024, it will have been six years since the Bryan police department reacted to a collision on Texas Avenue’s southern bend, just outside of downtown, where a vehicle repeatedly rear-ended an SUV. In November 2023, Rodrick Smither, a 48-year-old man from Huntsville, confessed to being guilty of driving under the influence (DUI) for the third time in Brazos County district court. Smither was not detained until January 10, and is now awaiting transportation to a state prison to commence his five-year sentence. According to his arrest report by Bryan Police Department (BPD), Smither was under the influence of PCP during the accident. He reached a plea agreement with the district attorney’s office which dismissed two drug-related charges and two incidents of driving with an expired license that occurred in 2017 and 2018.

In another incident, College Station police were alerted to a vehicle crashing into a backyard, fence and tree around 2:30 am on Friday, January 12. According to witness statements, if the car hadn’t struck the tree, it would have hit a house. Breathalyzer tests of the driver showed an alcohol level of more than double the legal limit, readings at 0.166 and 0.170 respectively, leading to the arrest of 38-year-old Jonathan Teeter from College Station for DWI. Teeter has been released from prison after posting a bail of $2,000. The report included pictures of both Rodrick Smither and Jonathan Teeter.
