WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) -- State Troopers made their fourth DWI arrest this weekend early Sunday morning.
Troopers arrested 31 year-old Terrence Gilligan of Jamestown at about 1:30am on Route 95 South in Warwick after receiving a 911 call from another motorist reporting a possibly intoxicated operator.
Troopers were able to locate and stop Gilligan, who appeared to be highly intoxicated. State Police report his Blood Alcohol Content readings were .282% and .273%. He was charged with DUI and held overnight pending his arraignment.
It's the fourth DUI arrest that the State Police made this weekend; one of those came after a suspected drunk driver struck a State Police cruiser on Route 37 Saturday morning.
A fire broke out early Wednesday evening at the Amtrol building on Division Road in West Warwick.
A man was found dead in a carbon monoxide-filled home in Coventry Wednesday night, according to police and firefighters.
A pedestrian was struck and killed while crossing the street in Warwick Wednesday evening.
As the temperature drops, the demand for space heaters goes up; but these small heating devices are already responsible for three deaths over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Police say they found newspaper clipping related to mass shootings in the suspect arrested in connection to a University of New Haven gun scare.
