Unless otherwise noted, information about the following incidents was supplied by the Narragansett Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
URI Student Charged With Disorderly Conduct, Vandalism
Timothy R. Lynn, 20, of 15 Breckenridge Court, Hamden, CT, was arrested at about 1:53 a.m. on May 15 and charged with disorderly conduct and vandalism.
According to police, they received multiple calls about disturbances in the streets near Gibson Avenue, Westmoreland Street, Earles Court and Noble Street.
Police said a renter at an Earles Court home told them that a man – later identified as Lynn – was throwing bottles through the front glass windows of his home. He then fell through a glass table and bent a door support on his way out, the renter said.
Three renters at the house told police that Lynn had been drinking most of the day, passed out, and then became violent and combative when he woke up.
According to police, they found a man matching the renter’s description – curly hair, no shirt and a bleeding right forearm – on Gibson Avenue. Police said that during questioning, he appeared to be intoxicated. He was shown to the renters, who positively identified him, and Lynn was then arrested.
Jamestown Man Charged with Disorderly Conduct Following Stabbing
Matthew P. Gregoire, 21, of 52 Lawn Ave., Jamestown, was arrested at about 7:38 p.m. on May 15 and charged with disorderly conduct.
According to police, they received a report of a stabbing at a home on Saltaire Avenue. When they arrived at the home, they noted a resident with a bruised left eye and dried blood on his chin.
When asked about his injuries, police said the victim refused to cooperate. He did tell them that he had been stabbed in the foot though. A friend of the victim told police that Gregoire had done it, and gave police a description of him.
Police said they saw Gregoire a short time later at the entrance of Fat Jack’s Pizza Shack. Because police believed he still might be in possession of a knife, reports noted that he was arrested at gunpoint.
According to police, a search of Gregoire revealed a 1.5” broken knife blade in one pocket, and a 3” blade in a back pants pocket. Gregoire told police he stabbed the victim in the foot when the victim tried to kick him.
Police said that the victim did not wish to press charges, so Gregoire was only charged with disorderly conduct. He was held overnight for arraignment in District Court because of past criminal charges.
According to Rhode Island’s online court database, Gregoire has been arrested about 10 times between 2009 and 2012, all for misdemeanors. The charges include vandalism, disorderly conduct, possession of alcohol by a minor and assault, some with domestic modifiers.
Last Day Person on Roof Gathering
At about 1:51 a.m. on May 14, police received a report of a loud party at 139 Sakonnet Boulevard.
According to police, when an officer arrived he shone his flashlight up at the roof and saw about 10 to 12 people on it, chatting loudly. Police said they were told to go back into the house, which they complied with.
The tenant was identified as Brad D. Clark, 21. He allegedly told police that he was moving out of the property in one day. The report was forwarded to the community police division for review.
