Two Disorderly Conduct Arrests

The male reportedly pushed him away, struck him in the head and Yergeau fell to the ground.  Police reported that Yergeau was bleeding from his head, had a large contusion above his left eye, had blood on his face and was bleeding from the lip.

Police transported Yergeau to the Newport Hospital and charged him with disorderly conduct.  The other male involved in the incident was released on scene.

Andrew Heater of Spring Texas was arrested on Thursday around 5:02 p.m. after he allegedly tried to sneak into a University of Rhode Island Senior party at the Atlantic Beach Club. Event organizers reportedly discovered he was wearing a fake bracelet to obtain access to the event and escorted the 22 year old man out of the bar.

Police reported at 4:30 p.m Heater stated he was trying to get a sober ride home.  Fifteen minutes later police reported he had changed his shirt and attempted to sneak back into the party.
A 23 year old Johnston male told police he had been elbowed by Heater, but he did not wish to press charges.  Heater was arrested for disorderly conduct.
