After some effort, the passenger was awoken. He, too, was confused and appeared to be drunk. Neither man spoke English well. Using rudimentary Spanish, police learned the mean had been working all day removing snow from rooftops and finished the day in East Greenwich, going out for drinks after. The driver said he had planned to sleep in the car overnight but because of the cold temperatures, police brought the men to the station. At 5 a.m., a man arrived to pick up the two men.
