Reno man admits DUI with collision

A Reno man who originally denied charges of causing substantial bodily harm while driving under the influence changed his plea Monday.

According to court documents, on Nov. 24, 2022, Adam Curtis Campbell, 34, was driving a silver dodge pickup eastbound on Genoa Lane at high speeds and failing to slow when approaching the intersection with Highway 395 and crashed into a Toyota Tacoma stopped at the intersection stop sign causing both vehicles to roll and resulting in substantial bodily harm to the driver and passenger.

This would be Campbell’s second felony DUI offense which could result in a prison sentence of 2-20 years. 

Sentencing is set for Feb. 21.

• A nationwide bench warrant for Charles Edward Smith was reinstated Monday with the amount being raised to $50,000 cash. 

Smith, 37, was arrested in June for attempted use of a stun gun on a security officer at a Stateline Casino.

He was scheduled to appear for sentencing on Oct. 9, but failed to appear and a warrant was issued in the amount of $15,000.

According to court documents, Smith was arrested in Carson City recently on the Oct. 9 warrant but was released due to medical issues.

He was scheduled to appear in Douglas County District Court on Monday but failed to appear again.
