DUI

Shortly before 4 a.m. on April 13, Officer Cody Wild responded to a report of a motor vehicle accident in the parking lot of the Motel 6 on Jefferson Boulevard.

At the scene, Wild made contact with the operator of a 2000 Chevrolet Impala. The vehicle had visible damage and the operator – who was uninjured – was seated in the driver’s seat.

According to Wild, the operator said she had fallen asleep at the wheel while attempting to leave the motel and struck two parked vehicles. A witness told police he observed the Impala strike two parked cars and attempt unsuccessfully to leave the scene due to the damage.

According to Wild, the operator’s speech was “mumbled” and that her eyes were “glossy.” She is said to have had difficulty maintaining eye contact and been “incoherent” during a conversation with the officer. The officer adds that the operator denied having consumed alcohol and that he “observed no indicators of an alcoholic beverage coming from” the woman.

The operator is said to have agreed to undergo field sobriety testing, which she reportedly failed.

Ebbetes Feliciano, 46, 174 Silver Spring St., Providence, was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence and transported to Kent Hospital for a blood draw at the officer’s request. Feliciano is said to have refused to consent to a chemical test.

Feliciano was issued a summons to appear in Third Division District Court on a charge of driving under the influence. She was additionally cited for refusal to submit to a chemical test and driving without insurance.

The officer reports the operator had “severly bloodshot” eyes, that his speech was “very slurred” and that he “appeared to be unsteady on his feet.” The officer also detected an “extremely strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” was emanating from the operator’s breath.

The operator is said to have acknowledged consuming alcohol that evening. He received medical clearance from rescue personnel and is said to have agreed to undergo field sobriety testing, which he reportedly failed.

IDENTITY FRAUD

On April 18 at approximately 4:30 p.m., Officer Maxwell A. Neiley responded to the lobby of Warwick Police headquarters for a report of identity fraud.

The reporting party indicated that between April 17 and April 18, she received three UPS return service shipping labels at her Utica Drive home for three separate cell phones from Sprint. The reporting party said she is not, and has never been, a Sprint customer.

The reporting party told Neiley that checks with UPS and Sprint revealed that an unknown person had used her name, address, phone number and Social Security number to open an online account with Sprint on March 19. UPS then delivered three Samsung Galaxy 8 phones to her home on March 21.
