Man convicted of abuse in death of son accused of assaulting cop

A Longmont man convicted last year of child abuse in the drowning death of his two-year-son has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a policeman.

Gil Smith, a former Longmont city employee, was arrested Friday afternoon.

The Longmont Daily Times-Call reported that Smith was being held in the Boulder County Jail and would appear in court tomorrow.

The jail did not return a call asking that Smith be made available to comment.

When he was arrested, he was still serving a 60-day sentence in the death of his son, serving the time on weekends.

The assault allegedly occurred when he was taken to jail after failing a sobriety test given after his vehicle collided with another vehicle.
