Around 12:49 a.m., April 9, Warwick Police on a fixed post spotted a vehicle traveling around 60 miles per hour south on Post Road (the speed limit is 35 mph).
“As the vehicle passed me, I conducted a U-turn and continued after the vehicle,” Warwick Police Officer Zachary J. Coyne wrote in the incident report. “I caught up to the vehicle at the intersection of Post Road and Mowry Ave. I matched the vehicle’s speed, which was still 60 miles per hour.”
Coyne noted that he saw the vehicle’s passenger tires cross the fog line.
“The vehicle almost struck a raised curb as it approached the intersection of Post Road and Elmwood Avenue,” Coyne wrote. “Based on the vehicle’s speed and the difficulty maintaining its lane, I suspected that the operator was possibly under the influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs. I activated my cruiser’s emergency lights and siren and attempted to stop the vehicle on Post Road before Route 37.”
Instead of stopping on Post Road, however, the vehicle turned right and continued onto Route 37 westbound, despite the police lights and siren.
“Right before the end of the on-ramp, the vehicle abruptly stopped and swerved right, almost colliding with a construction barrel,” Coyne wrote.
Coyne requested an additional officer respond to the scene to assist.
Coyne approached the vehicle and identified the driver as David R. Fogell, of 15 Cardinal Road, Cranston. Police asked the driver for his license, registration and proof of insurance, but Fogell had difficulty finding the pertinent documents among a mass of paperwork taken from the vehicle’s glove compartment.
Coyne shined his flashlight into the passenger compartment.
“I observed Fogell to have moderately bloodshot and watery eyes,” Coyne wrote. “Fogell’s face was very red and blotchy.”
The driver told police that “he knew he was going too fast,” according to the report.
“I asked Fogell if (he) had consumed any alcohol tonight,” Coyne wrote. “Fogell stated that he had consumed 5 Bud Lights earlier at a bar in East Providence. Fogell’s speech was sol slurred I had to ask Fogell to repeat himself several times.”
Fogell submitted to Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, but refused to submit to a chemical test.
He was arrested and transported to headquarters. Fogell was charged with DUI of Liquor (BAC unknown, first offense) and received citations for Refusal to Submit to Chemical Test (first offense), Speeding 11+ mph in Excess of Posted Speed Limit (first offense) and Landed Roadway Violations.
He was later released to a sober adult, according to police.
Around 10:50 p.m., April 10, Warwick Police Officer Johnathan H. DiPietro was traveling north on Greenwich Avenue when he approached Greenwich Village Apartments and observed a white Jeep Cherokee exit the lot and turn right onto Lambert Lind Highway northbound.
The vehicle exited slow and wide, crossing both lanes, according to police.
“The vehicle abruptly veered to the right, correcting itself into the northbound lane of travel,” DiPietro wrote in the incident report.
The vehicle was traveling very slowly and approached the flashing yellow signal in front of The Cork and Rye at 255 Lambert Lind Highway.
“The vehicle came to a stop at the flashing yellow traffic signal and remained stationary for several seconds,” DiPietro wrote. The vehicle then accelerated quickly to the next set of traffic lights, which displayed a red signal. The vehicle came to a stop one full car length over the white stop line. The vehicle remained stationary at the red traffic signal and then continued northbound, as the light still displayed a red signal.”
DiPietro activated his emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop.
The driver was identified as Thomas P. Flynn Jr., 64, of 11 Fernwood Drive, Cranston.
“While speaking with Flynn, I noticed that his speech was extremely stuttered and his movements were slow and lethargic,” DiPietro wrote.
DiPietro noted that he observed a “nip” bottle in the center console cup holder. After he was asked if he had anything to drink, Flynn allegedly told police that he had “drank too much,” according to the report.
Eventually Flynn submitted to Standardized Field Sobriety Tests.
He was arrested and transported to police headquarters. Eventually, Flynn refused to take a chemical breath test. Flynn was charged with DUI of Liquor (BAC unknown) and issued a citation for Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test (first offense). He also received traffic citations for Manner of Turning at an Intersection and Obedience to Traffic Control Devices.
He was later released to a sober adult, according to police.
