Smith’s response to the accusation of stealing chickens:
I did not steal my neighbor’s chickens. I did not, under the cover of night, crawl under the fence, climb through the hen house window, stuff 4 chickens into a burlap bag, climb back out the window, crawl back under the fence, run like a scalded dog back to my car and speed away. Nope! No way! I didn’t do it! I have been falsely accused.
