Narragansett Man Charged With Drunken Driving, Possession of Knife
Miles Divincenzo, 19, of 34 Beach Plum Road, Narragansett, was arrested at about 2:36 a.m. on Oct. 28 and charged with drunken driving and possession of an illegal knife, and cited for refusing to submit to a chemical test.
According to police, they received a report of a one-car accident on Kinney Avenue with injuries. Police said when they arrived, Divincenzo was attempting to treat the injuries of an 18-year-old woman in the rear passenger seat.
Police said the woman was complaining of stomach pains and had a bloody nose. She was transported to South County Hospital for treatment. Police noted that both airbags in the Saturn SL2 were deployed.
According to police, Divincenzo smelled of alcohol and marijuana. He told police he hadn’t been drinking, but did tell them he had smoked marijuana about an hour before the crash. He allegedly told police he “lost control of the vehicle and crashed.”
Police said Divincenzo consented to field sobriety tests, which he failed. He was arrested as a result. A pocket knife with an illegal blade was also confiscated.
Divincenzo was processed at police headquarters and then released at about 11:15 a.m. The injuries to the passenger were not believed to be life threatening.
URI Student Charged With Disorderly Conduct
Evan D. Trifero, 22, 14 Bayview Park, Newport, was arrested at about 1:08 a.m. on Oct. 28 and charged with disorderly conduct. Police said Trifero is a student at the University of Rhode Island.
According to police, they received a report of a disturbance at a home on Continental Road. Witnesses told police that Trifero and a friend were arguing, and that Trifero got frustrated because the friend wouldn’t drive him home, breaking a table.
Police said they spoke to the friend and the table’s owner, and neither wished to press charges. Police tried to interview Trifero, but he refused to provide police with a statement, they said.
As a result, Trifero was only charged with disorderly conduct, as opposed to vandalism or assault. He was processed at police headquarters and then released at about 2 a.m.
