Police Log



Officer Terence McMullin reported he was dispatched to the Comfort Inn Hotel around 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 17 for a report of an intoxicated woman in the hotel lobby. He said he spoke with the clerk who told him that the woman was at the bar earlier and, when the bar closed at 11 p.m., she came to the desk and asked to rent a room. He told McMullin he was uncomfortable about doing that because she was so intoxicated and when he told her that, she became belligerent and went to sit on a couch. McMullin said he asked the woman for her identification and asked if there was anyone who could come and get her and she said she did not but that became beside the point when he ran the woman’s name and learned there was a Superior Court bench warrant for failure to appear on a felony shoplifting charge that was issued on Nov. 4. He said he then arrested the woman who insisted she did nothing wrong and brought her to headquarters where she refused to cooperate and “refused to take off her vast amount of jewelry or to cooperate with the intake process.” Due to her highly intoxicated state, McMullin said they left Eileen Feliciano Miller, 47, of 118B Bonnet Shores Rd. in Narragansett, in a holding cell until she was sober enough for booking and later transported her to the ACI Women’s Intake Center.
