10:08 a.m. – Police arrested a North Kingstown man, 26, for driving with a suspended license after he was involved in a car accident on Post Road at Grasslands Road. His car, a Jeep, was heavily damaged in front and 5 gallons of brown paint that had been in the Jeep spilled onto the road, causing problems for other motorists. Police gave the man a district court summons for the license violation. His car was towed from the scene and Rhode Island Dept. of Transportation showed up to apply quick dry to the paint.
