Alleged Drunken Driver: God Will Take Care Of Police
Wayne Everett, 42, of 2030 Kingstown Road, South Kingstown, was arrested at about 3:29 a.m. on Jan. 1 and charged with drunken driving.
According to police, an officer noted a green Jeep Cherokee driven by Everett at a high rare of speed on Kingstown Road. Police said a radar reading wasn’t obtained, but Everett was swerving and made a right-hand turn on to High Street without a signal.
Police said a traffic stop was made on High Street as a result. Police said that Everett smelled strongly of alcohol, and initially, was slurring his words so much that the officer couldn’t understand him.
According to police, Everett refused to consent to field sobriety tests, telling police, “Just let me go, I ain’t doing nothing wrong. Just tell me to go home.”
Police said when asked again about field sobriety tests, Everett told them, “Look, we know I’ve been drinking but I’m not a bad man. You are making me out to be a bad man.”
According to police, Everett talked through his arrest and continually refused to cooperate with police. He allegedly told them during the ride back to headquarters, “I’m a church-going man, I go to ****ing school. God is gonna take care of you.”
Police said that during processing, Everett was belligerent and unreasonable, and said, “I know some people that don’t give a **** and now they are gonna know who you are.”
According to police, at one point Everett began crying after making a hone call, but then again got belligerent when they attempted to acquire basic information from him. Police said he told them, “I go to URI, I’m gonna get my ****ing degree! You just think I’m some bad ******!”
Police said that based on his behavior, they were unable to finish processing Everett at that time, and placed him in a cell until his behavior stabilized. According to police, Everett was processed and released at about 12:49 p.m.
New Year’s Eve Party Leads to Four Citations, One Arrest
According to police, while breaking up a party of about 100 people at 294 Woodruff Avenue, four people were cited and one man was arrested.
Joshua L. Sheehan, 18, of 36 Cole St., Jamestown, was arrested at about 12:40 a.m. on Jan. 1 and charged with obstruction and resisting arrest.
According to police, while attempting to clear the home of people at the party, Sheehan kept trying to re-enter the house. Police said that Sheehan said, “I am looking for my scarf, bro.”
Police said that the renters did not want Sheehan in the home, identifying him as a partygoer who had caused a fight earlier in the night. As a result, police told him he was not welcome at the home, and that he could make arrangements to pickup his scarf another time.
According to police, Sheehan was highly intoxicated, and kept approaching them and trying to enter the house. Police said that after multiple warnings, he was arrested after trying to forcibly move an officer away from the door.
Police said that due to icy steps and Sheehan’s intoxication level, he fell on the way to the squad car. They noted that he had dried blood on his forehead, and lacerations and abrasions consistent with the other reports of him having been in a fight.
According to police, while processing Sheehan he kept falling off a stool, and a breath test revealed a blood alcohol level of .144. After consulting with South Kingstown EMS, he was transferred to South County Hospital for treatment at about 1:34 a.m.
Police said four of the tenants were home, and they were identified as:
- Victoria P. Dolivo, 20, of 4267 Post Road, East Greenwich
- Jaclynn E. Mobley, 20, of 104 Polo Drive, Saunderstown
- Samantha M. Croteau, 20, of 115 King Phillip Drive, North Kingstown
- Jessica E. Guarneri, 20, of 65 Birchwood Drive, North Kingstown
Police said all four were cited for possession of alcohol by a minor.
South Kingstown Man Cited for Alcohol Violation
Galen Wolfenden, 20, of 75 Wright Ave., South Kingstown, was cited at about 2:30 a.m. on Jan. 1 and charged with transportation of alcohol by a minor.
According to police, an officer stopped Wolfenden’s car on Saugatucket Road for a defective tail light. Police said the car smelled of marijuana, and an open can of Narragansett beer was on the floor of the front passenger seat.
Police said Wolfenden consented to field sobriety tests, which he passed. However, an inventory of the car also revealed an unopened bottle of vodka in the trunk.
As a result, Wolfenden was cited for transportation of alcohol by a minor. He was processed on scene and then released.
