Third Domestic Incident Results in Felony Charges for South Kingstown Man

Jason M. Morris, 27, of 499 High St., South Kingstown, was arrested at about 5:26 a.m. on Oct. 1 and charged with domestic assault and domestic refusal to relinquish a telephone. Both charges were elevated to felonies because of previous arrests.

According to police, they received a call from a South Kingstown woman who told them that Morris had just assaulted her and left the area on foot. Police noted that there was an active no-contact order between her and Morris, based on incidents and arguments about his drug usage.

Police said they found Morris nearby, on the bike path near Main Street and Church Street. He was arrested without incident.

According to police, Morris began vomiting during transport, and as a result, he was taken to South County Hospital for treatment. He was discharged at about 7:30 a.m., and then transported to Fourth Division District Court at about 9 a.m.

Narragansett Man Charged With Drunken Driving

David R. Field, 48, of 10 Jean St., Narragansett, was arrested at about 10:31 p.m. on Oct. 1 and charged with drunken driving, and cited for refusing to submit to a chemical test.

According to police, an officer monitoring traffic at the Dale Carlia intersection noted a man in a blue pickup truck driving without a seatbelt on. A traffic stop was made near Belmont’s Market.

Police said while speaking with Field, he appeared to be intoxicated. He told police he had had only one beer while bowling at Old Mountain Lanes earlier that night.

According to police, Field consented to field sobriety tests, which he then failed. He was arrested without incident. While being arrested, he allegedly told police, “I had a few but I’m not that bad.”

Police said that at headquarters, Field refused to submit to a chemical test. He was cited for this as well, processed and then released at about 11:45 p.m.
