‘Fat Dog’ wants to curb alias in federal court

MOUNT CLEMENS, July 12, 2009 (AP): You could call him Jeff Garvin Smith or just Smith—as in, “United States vs. Smith.”

But he’d rather not be called ``Fat Dog,'' at least not while federal charges of illegally possessing body armor are pending against him.

The Macomb Daily says the 54-year-old Mount Clemens resident has filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Detroit, asking prosecutors to remove his alias from documents related to the case.

Public defenders Andrew Wise and Bradley Hall wrote in the motion that the use of ``Fat Dog'' isn’t related to the criminal charge and likely would bias a jury, should the case go that far.

A message seeking comment on the motion was left Sunday with Gina Balaya, a spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg.
