According to reports, Vicario left his 2006 BMW in the parking lot of the Dunkin' Donuts on Fortin Road near the University of Rhode Island campus despite many signs warning against non-customers parking there. The cashier reportedly told police the restaurant has called J&D's Towing of Kingston to remove the car several times, but Vicario had always moved the car before the tow company could retrieve it.

When Vicario realized his BMW was gone, he allegedly went into the doughnut shop, called the cashier "ugly" and other names and said "if you weren't behind that counter, I would kill you." Then witnesses claim Vicario grabbed a stack of empty cups and threw them.

A customer tried to restrain Vicario to keep him on scene but he escaped before police arrived. Police tracked Vicario down through his towed BMW.

Vicario will be arraigned in Fourth Division District Court on March 15.
