Fredericton Police Officer Facing Domestic Assault Charge Earlier Honoured For Bravery

Constable Jeffrey Smiley of the Fredericton Police Department was honoured for bravery just a few months ago by the Governor-General but now finds himself on the wrong side of the law, facing a charge of domestic assault.

Constable Smiley who was off duty at the time spent the weekend in jail after being arrested late last week.

He received the Star of Courage from Governor-General David Johnston at Rideau Hall just last December for the part he playing in pulling a 73-year-old woman from her car in January of 2012 after it left the road, winding up in the St. John River.
