1:50 p.m. – The animal control officer was called to a parking lot on South County Trail after a report of a dog left in a car. When the officer arrived, the air temperature was 87 degrees. The car’s windows were cracked “about three inches” and inside the car the small dog was panting heavily. The driver, from Fall River, Mass., was cited.
2:50 p.m. – Called to New England Clam on Water Street on the report of a disturbance, police found three women who had gotten in an argument after one woman asked one of the other women for a cigarette and was denied. It was a verbal fight only, according to police.
6:30 p.m. – An East Greenwich resident told police she was getting messages from a man she’d broken up with the previous month despite asking him to stop contacting her. The man had left messages like, “I will marry you,” and I’m not giving up,” and “I won’t let this relationship end.” Earlier this day, the woman’s sister saw the man pull up in front of their house. When the woman sent him a message to leave, he did, but then was seen driving by several more times. Police contacted the man, who said he wasn’t breaking any laws and that he wasn’t going to stop. Based on that, the woman asked for an emergency restraining order, which a judge refused to grant. Instead, police filed a No Trespass order, which the man refused to sign.
