12:09 a.m. – A West Warwick man, 30, was arrested for driving on a suspended license after police pulled him over for speeding on Division Street. Routine checks showed that his license was suspended from a refusing to take a breathalyzer test in August. He said he was only driving to and from work. Police told him he was not allowed to drive at all. He was given a district court summons. The car was towed.

5:30 p.m. – As officers were on a traffic stop on Church Street, a woman from one of the apartments came screaming and yelling at the police officers while they were on the traffic stop. The officers asked her to go back inside but she didn’t. She then threw a piece of paper in the street and refused to pick it. Police issued her town violations for littering and placing trash in the street where prohibited.

4:43 p.m. – A North Kingstown woman, 40, was arrested for driving on a suspended license after police stopped her for not using a turn signal and for having a child in the car not being in seatbelt or being child restraint seat.

9:24 p.m. – An employee of Frank and John’s on Main Street told police a valet from La Masseria had come into Frank and John’s yelling and accusing the employee of throwing an egg at a La Masseria customer’s car. The valet admitted to police he’d gone into Frank and John’s but denied yelling, instead accusing the Frank and John’s employee of yelling at him. The issue appeared to be over use of the Bank of America parking lot next to Frank and John’s. The owner of Frank and John’s told police he had permission for customers to park there. Meanwhile, the manager of La Masseria said he had permission for valets to park cars there. Since the parking lot is privately owned, the parties were told it was a civil matter. The owner of Frank and John’s did request that the valet be issues a “no trespass” order, which was done.
