Sheriff’s officials say Deputy Stephen Blackman was stopped with a vehicle on Prospect Street shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Saturday morning when a 2003 Honda Civic, driven by 24-year-old Lauren Smith of Binghamton, collided with the rear of the Deputy’s patrol vehicle which has it’s emergency lights displayed.

Smith and her one-year-old child, who was improperly fastened in the back seat, were also not injured.

Smith has been charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child in the vehicle, endangering the welfare of a child, aggravated driving while intoxicated for having a blood alcohol content over .18 percent, failure to exercise due care for an emergency vehicle, and improperly restraining a child under the age of four.

Smith was arraigned in the Town of Dickinson Court and released pending further court action.  The child was released to a family member.
