Former San Mateo County sheriff’s deputy pleads not guilty in two cases
March 13, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Colin Smith

A former San Mateo County sheriff’s deputy who allegedly beat up his ex-girlfriend’s former boyfriend and in a later separate incident disregarded a no-contact order pleaded not guilty Wednesday to assault and witness dissuasion charges after a judge first denied a prosecution request to hike his $150,000 bail.

Colin Troy Smith, 42, of San Carlos, was scheduled for trial June 16 in the two cases which are now consolidated. He faces up to a decade in prison if convicted of the four felonies.

On Aug. 17, according to the District Attorney’s Office, Smith drove his patrol car while on duty through Redwood City searching for his ex-girlfriend at local bars. When he spotted her outside a bar with another former boyfriend, he allegedly sent her several texts demanding information about the relationship between the couple, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

The following morning after getting off work at 7 a.m., Smith reportedly drove to the woman’s home, where the former boyfriend had stayed the night, and demanded entry into the home. Prosecutors said he threatened to kick down the door and pushed his way through in search of the victim, who was hiding in a bathroom.

Smith then severely assaulted the victim, breaking his eye socket and nose, prosecutors said.

While out on $50,000 bail in the assault case, Smith was then arrested on Dec. 4 for disregarding a no-contact court order and approaching the woman in her vehicle. He reportedly called her names and yelled that she would lose the other case against him and not to call the police. After he left, she called authorities.

Smith is free from custody. He returns to court July 7 for a pretrial conference.
