10:31 a.m. – An East Greenwich man who lives next door to Rocco’s Bistro on Main Street complained about the noise he hears through their shared wall. Since the restaurant was closed, police said they would return in the evening and speak to the management about the complaint.

3:09 p.m. – Police arrested an East Greenwich man, 46, on outstanding warrants after someone at the Greenwich Hotel called police because the man was unresponsive. By the time police arrived, EG Fire was on the scene and the man was conscious and alert. He told police he had two warrants out for him and police confirmed the warrants out of Warwick. He was arrested and Warwick police picked him up.

Friday, Dec. 8

8:12 p.m. – Police arrested a Providence man, 52, for driving while intoxicated after they were alerted to an erratic driver on Main Street near the East Greenwich Fire Station. According to the report, the car ran several red lights before stopping in the road in front of the East Greenwich Fire Station. When police made contact with the driver they found him sitting with his head back, asleep in the driver’s seat. Police had to knock on the window many times before he woke up. When he opened the door, he said, “What’s going on?” The car was still in drive and he had his foot on the brake pedal. Police told him to shut off the car. The man smelled of alcohol, was slurring his speech and his eyes were bloodshot. Police asked him if he had any drinks and he said, “Yes, a lot.” Specifically, he told them, he’d had “4 to 6 drinks of hard liquor.” The man took the field sobriety tests and failed, so police took him into custody. He was released with a District Court summons.
