A Few Too Many Beers & A Broken Laptop

Information about the following arrests was supplied by the East Greenwich Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.

Monday, Aug. 8

1:20 p.m. - Police cited a Warwick man for driving with a suspended license and suspended car registration after police noticed the out-of-date registration sticker on the car as it was traveling north on Main Street near Division. The car was towed from the scene.

Wednesday, Aug. 10

1:21 a.m. - Police arrested Raymond Bell, 21, on a bench warrant for failure in court to appear after Bell came to the station seeking a ride home. He was taken into custody.

4:40 p.m. - Police arrested Kathleen Schumacher, 50, of Oak Dell Circle on a charge of malicious injury to property after she admitted shutting her husband’s laptop computer in anger, breaking the computer screen and a pair of his glasses that had been resting on the keyboard. Schumacher was issued a domestic no-contact order.

Monday, Aug. 15

1:40 a.m. - Police arrested Scott Anderson, 27, of Providence for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol after he was stopped on Main Street near Sunnybrook Farms. Anderson told police that he had been at a cookout and had had approximately 10 beers over the course of the afternoon and evening. He also told police that he should not be driving because of all he had had to drink. He failed the field sobriety test administered by police. His breathalyzer came back .220. The legal limit is .08. (A test result .15 percent or more over the legal limit, that driver is subject to more severe punishment by the courts.)

Last I knew, the limit was .08% ; when did it change?

Carl, you are correct. I will amend the sentence. If a driver has a chemical test showing a BAC level that is .15 percent or more over the legal limit, that driver is subject to more severe punishment by the courts. Thanks.

The real "Crime" is allowing the Briggs-Boesh farm to be converted from a Certified Organic Vegetable operation to a place that slaughters pigs.

Another real "Crime" is that the editor reports makes real mistakes about how drunk or how arrested people are, but seems to be able to get their names right.
