11:51 p.m. – Police arrested an East Greenwich man, 32, for driving while intoxicated and refusing to take a blood alcohol test after he was stopped for failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign on King Street at Duke Street and for swerving over the center line. Police, smelling alcohol, asked if he’d been drinking, to which he said he’d had two glasses of saki while at Raku on Main Street. He agreed to take a field sobriety test, which he failed. His preliminary breath test registered .184 percent blood alcohol. Based on both those things, the man was taken into custody. At the station, he refused the official breath test. He was released with district court and traffic court summonses and given a ride to his residence.

10:20 p.m. – Police were called to Queen Street near the Firemen’s Hall for a report of a domestic disturbance between a couple and found a woman holding her nose, which was bleeding, and running toward Water Street. Rescue was called and stopped the bleeding; the woman refused any other help and refused to go to the hospital. She would not talk to police about what happened. The man said the woman was his girlfriend and they’d been attending her high school reunion. They’d been drinking vodka. On Queen Street, they’d started arguing then, the man said, the woman tripped into him, striking her nose on his head. He said she’d grabbed a chain around his neck to avoid falling; the chain broke. Both the man and the woman appeared to have been drinking. Because the woman would not cooperate, police took the man to his Main Street residence; the woman was taken to the police station to wait for a friend to pick her up.

Sunday, May 18

4:30 p.m. – Police arrested an East Providence woman, 52, for domestic vandalism and disorderly conduct after an EG resident told police she had proof the EP woman had broken windows at her house on Saturday. The EP woman was a former partner of the EG resident but the relationship had ended in discord in October. The resident showed police photos from a motion-activated camera mounted on a tree behind her house that showed a woman approach the back of the house, carrying something that looked like a golf club. Police contacted the East Providence woman, who said the house belonged to both of them. She came to the police station and eventually admitted breaking the windows. She was charged, given a district court summons and released.
