Despite arrests, village trustee works security at public college

Michael Smith was elected to the Dixmoor village board when he was still a teenager. These days, Smith, 24, is known for something besides that early entrée into politics. In the last two years, Smith has been charged on three separate occasions with theft, battery, resisting arrest and more. Despite that history, Smith has been working as a part-time unarmed security guard at taxpayer-supported South Suburban College.
