Three URI Students Cited for Fighting at Coast Guard House

Police said they obtained a witness statement from a bouncer at the restaurant, and all three were cited for fighting as a result.

URI Student Charged With Possession of Marijuana

John W. Dugas, 21, of 1 Mohawk Trail, Narragansett, was arrested at about 10:56 a.m. on Sept. 21 and charged with possession of marijuana. Police said Dugas is a student at the University of Rhode Island.

According to police, an officer monitoring traffic on Boston Neck Road near the Canonchet Beach Club clocked a car at 50 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour zone. A traffic stop was made near the Sprague Bridge.

Police said that while the driver – Dugas – looked for his license and registration, a plastic baggie with marijuana, a pipe and a lighter in it could be seen on the backseat.

According to police, they asked Dugas if there was any marijuana in the car. He told them no. When asked about the baggie, Dugas told them that he forgot that was on the backseat.

Dugas was arrested with incident, and also cited for the speeding violation. He was processed and then released at about 12:05 p.m.

South Kingstown Man Charged With License Violation for Six-Year-Old Child Support Violation

Michael Joseph Brownhill, 31, of 107 Willard Ave., South Kingstown, was arrested at about 3:38 p.m. on Sept. 21 and charged with driving with a suspended license.

According to police, an officer traveling behind a white Lincoln on Point Judith Road near Sunset Farm couldn’t read the temporary registration of the vehicle because of the light print on the form. A traffic stop was made at Sunset Farm.

Police said a background check of the driver revealed that his license was suspended in September 2006 for failure to pay child support. According to police, Brownhill is a car salesman in East Greenwich. He was processed at police headquarters and then released at about 4:15 p.m.

Two URI Students Cited for Possession of Alcohol

Glenn F. Rogers, 20, of 11 Fraternity Circle, South Kingstown, and David Sean Mann, 19, of Gorham Hall, were cited at about 11:45 p.m. on Sept. 21 and charged with possession of alcohol by a minor.

According to police, while clearing a party of about 70 people at 3 Pilgrim Avenue, they noted Rogers and Mann further down the street. Police said Rogers had a backpack on, and Mann had a backpack and a beer in his hand.

Police said when they approached the two, they attempted to hide behind some nearby bushes. When asked what was in the backpack, Rogers told them, “Just a couple of beers.”

According to police, they confiscated three cans of Bud Light from Mann and 10 cans of Keystone Light from Rogers. Both were cited after background checks revealed they were not 21 yet.

Police noted that it wasn’t clear whether Rogers and Mann were at the party at Pilgrim Avenue, or simply in the area. The party was cleared without incident, police said, with only one car receiving a parking citation.

Man Advised That Neighbor Can See Him Showering

At about 10:35 a.m. on Sept. 19, police received a complaint about a man being visible while he was naked and showering.

Police said that a resident of a home in Sunny Brook Farm told them that she could see her neighbor showering when she left her driveway. She asked police to inform him, since she had children and did not want them to witness this.

According to police, they informed the man at about 10:40 a.m., who told them that he wasn’t aware anyone could see. Police told the initial complainant, and the matter was closed without any arrests.
