MALONE — Franklin County Legislator Guy H. “Tim” Smith, 71, entered a plea of not guilty Monday in Malone Town Court on a charge of driving while ability impaired by alcohol.

Franklin County Undersheriff Patrick A. White said Mr. Smith’s blood alcohol content was 0.055 percent in a roadside test and was 0.050 percent at the police station.

Mr. Smith, who is a Democrat representing Fort Covington, was pulled over about 6 p.m. Aug. 15 a few miles outside the village. A sheriff’s deputy said Mr. Smith’s vehicle crossed over the center line.

State police assisted with the subsequent field sobriety test, as the Sheriff’s Department did not have a Breathalyzer.

Mr. Smith is running unopposed for re-election this fall. He has been a legislator since 2001, and was chairman of the County Legislature from 2006 to 2011. He serves on the Finance and Human Resources committees, and is majority leader on the board.
