East Providence Man Charged With Drunken Driving

Zachariah J. Marshall, 27, of 31 Austin Ave., East Providence, was arrested at about 1:17 a.m. on Nov. 1 and charged with drunken driving, and cited for refusing to submit to a chemical test.

According to police, an officer driving on Main Street by Bell Block clocked a black Volkswagen at 40 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour zone. The officer also noted the car swerving, and a traffic stop was made on Old Tower Hill Road.

Police said that the driver – Marshall – smelled of alcohol, and said he had just left the Mews after having a few drinks. Police said Marshall submitted to field sobriety tests, which he failed, at which point he was arrested.

According to police, while processing Marshall, he told an officer, “Yeah, I probably shouldn’t be driving.” He refused to submit to a chemical breath test.

Police said Marshall was processed at headquarters and then released at about 2:20 a.m.

Wakefield Man Charged With Domestic Assault

Philip P. Crowe, 20, of 1080 Broad Rock Road, Wakefield, was arrested at about 1:26 p.m. on Nov. 1 and charged with domestic assault.

According to police, a woman went to headquarters at 9 a.m. to file a complaint about Crowe. She told police that she had met Crowe, a former boyfriend, at CVS the night of Oct. 31, and they had agreed to go to his place so that she could remove her leftover belongings.

However, the woman told police that they began arguing on the drive over, and when they arrived at the home, Crowe said, “Oh, you want to fight, huh? I’ll beat the **** out of you.”

The woman said Crowe punched her several times, and only stopped when a family member yelled at him from the house. The woman told police she asked for a phone to call 911, but no one at the property would oblige, and instead two relatives of Crowe drove her home.

Police said that based on the victim’s statement and injuries, a warrant was issued for Crowe’s arrest. An officer found him at his home at about 1:32 p.m. and arrested him without incident.

According to police, Crowe denied fighting with the victim, and said that he had instead gotten into a fight with some girls on the bike path. He later changed his story and said it was the victim. Police noted that Crowe also had injuries, mostly minor scratches.

Crowe was processed at police headquarters and then released at about 2:45 p.m.
