KOKOMO, Ind. — A Kokomo police officer who was charged with a road rage-related battery will be put on unpaid administrative leave. The Kokomo Police Dept. confirmed Roy Smith, who was been with the department since 2005, will be placed on unpaid administrative leave starting on November 24. Charges were filed against Smith in September in connection to a road rage confrontation where a man's nose was broken. Court documents indicated Smith was off-duty when he and a 60-year-old man got into a physical fight after the man said Smith cut a vehicle off on Southway Boulevard on May 22, 2022.
