Police said that Guscott told them his car ended up in the ditch when he tried to turn around, and when he couldn’t get the car out, he climbed into the passenger’s seat. He told police, “As drunk as I am, my girlfriend was worse.”
Police noted that when Guscott stepped out the car, he smelled strongly of feces, and there were brown stains on the back of his shorts. When asked about the smell, he told police, “I **** myself when I was drunk.”
According to police, Guscott failed field sobriety tests and was arrested. Police said that at headquarters, his blood alcohol content tested at .125 at 6:54 a.m. and .134 at 6:56 a.m.

Arrested Again Because of That Guy – South Kingstown Man Charged With Disorderly Conduct
