A Portland woman remained in jail Tuesday night after she was arrested for allegedly using her vehicle to hit a Falmouth man in his own driveway.

Finlay, who is being held at the Cumberland County Jail, faces charges of aggravated assault, criminal mischief, and violation of conditions of release. Portland police also have two unrelated warrants for her arrest.
