After reviewing an accident report from Wednesday and hearing from witnesses, police decided to charge a West Greenwich man, 41, with two counts of driving to endanger, resulting in injury, and a Shannock man, 30, with malicious damage, reckless driving and disorderly conduct. The Shannock man was also cited for driving with a suspended license and failing to appear in district court, as well being a probation violator in both superior and district courts.

12:51 p.m. – Police were called to South County Trail near the border with North Kingstown after a shed fell off a truck onto the road. The owner of the shed, a West Greenwich man, said he’d been transporting the shed from a friend’s house in East Greenwich when the shed hit a guide wire over the road, pushing the shed off the trailer and scattering debris across the entire roadway. The WG man said the wire was too low.

10:09 a.m. – Police were called to EGFD Station One on Main Street after a woman went there to report an assault by her boyfriend. Police noticed immediately the woman appeared to be drunk. No injuries were apparent. EGFD rescue took her to Kent Hospital. Police check in with the boyfriend and a neighbor, both of whom said no physical fight had taken place. Her boyfriend said the woman was fed up with their financial situation and she had had approximately 18 beers and some vodka since the previous evening.

3:30 p.m. – A Warwick man told police he was assaulted by a man driving a small black Hyundai sedan with Massachusetts plates during a road rage incident. The Warwick man said the other driver started harassing him while they were both driving on Post Road near Cedar Avenue. At the light there, the other driver got out and tried to provoke a fight, then threw a nearly empty water bottle at him and spit in his face. The Warwick man then called police and the other driver turned around and drove south on Post Road.

3:50 p.m. – A resident of Miss Fry Drive told police there was a sinkhole in the road in front of her house. Police found a sinkhole around 2 feet deep and about 3 feet wide. Police contacted Public Works to mark off the damaged area, pending repair.

12:27 a.m. – Police were called to an apartment on Main Street because of a fight between two groups that escalated to throwing food at each other. Police noticed broken eggs on the sidewalk in front of the apartment along with several small cups of salsa. Two of the eggs hit a car parked in front of the building. No one, including the owner of the egged car, wished to press charges. Some of those involved cleaned up the food debris.

1:32 a.m. – Police arrested a West Warwick man, 34, for violating a no-contact order after the car he was traveling in was stopped because its tail lights were out. Routine checks on the car’s driver and passenger turned up the no-contact order on the passenger against the driver. The West Warwick was taken into custody, processed at the station and held until morning to be taken to the Adult Correctional Facilities in Cranston.

4:59 p.m. – Police arrested a 13-year-old for driving without a license after the juvenile was stopped on Post Road, accompanied by another 13-year-old. Police took both children to the station to await pickup by their parents.

9:08 p.m. – A King Street resident complained of loud music from Blu on the Water, which police documented at just above the decibel level at 65 decibels (the limit). Police spoke with the Blu manager, who according to the report was very cooperative.

10:49 p.m. – The same King Street resident again complained about the noise level from Blu on the Water and again the readings were at 65 decibels. The resident invited police into the house and officers could feel a thumping from the bass coming from Blu. Police told him the readings were within the town ordinance. The resident said he understood, but wanted police to feel the thumping vibration in his house.
