Middletown Arrests: Drunk Man Allegedly Builds Traffic Barrier
The following arrests were reported by the Middletown Police Department. An arrest does not imply a conviction.
Kevin Harris, of 7 Towne St., North Attleboro, Mass. was arrested on Monday night around 8:05 p.m. on charges of disorderly conduct.
The 22 year old man allegedly pulled a cement block with a pole into Aquidneck Ave., then took an Aquidneck Pizza Delivery sign from the ground, and placed it next to the block. Police reported the obstruction blocked traffic, which created a back-up of a significant number of cars.
Police reported when they found Harris near the scene, he was so intoxicated that he could not say where he had come from, where he was going or his correct date of birth.
Once taken into custody, a friend brought his wallet and cell so that police were able to identify Harris.
Shana Brady of 1776 West Main Road was arrested on on Monday afternoon around 2:45 p.m. on simple assault charges. A woman reportedly went to Brady’s house to collect a stolen bathing suit and was let into the residence by Brady's son. Police reported Brady threw the bathing suit at the woman, grabbed her by the shoulders and forced her out of the residence.
Police said when they placed Brady under arrest her son yelled out the window “I’m going to kill all three of you cops for taking my mom away. I’m going to shoot you all.”
