Truck Driver Placement Service Owner Sentenced for False Drug Testing
August 20, 2001
Roy C. Smillie, owner of CDL Staffing, Inc., was fined $4,000 and placed on two years probation in U.S. District Court in Arlington, TX for falsifying drug tests of commercial truck drivers. CDL Staffing, Inc. is a temporary-staffing agency providing motor carrier companies with qualified truck drivers. Smillie instructed his employees to destroy records of positive drug tests and record only negative results. Upon learning of the positive test results, Smillie instructed drivers to return to his shop after they ingested “golden seal,” a substance used to mask other drugs. FMCSA provided technical assistance to OIG during the investigation.
