Westbrook Police Arrest Hit-and-Run Suspect

Police say 47-year-old Douglas Smilie drove onto a
sidewalk outside of the Millside Tavern and crashed into a man standing on the
sidewalk on Cumberland Street. Police say Smilie has an extensive criminal
history that includes previous convictions for robbery, arson, kidnapping,
aggravated assault and burglary. He's now charged with aggravated assault and
aggravated reckless conduct.
