DUI

Shortly before 5 p.m. on Dec. 12, Officer Maxwell A. Neiley responded to the area of 777 Cowesett Road for a report of a motor vehicle accident with injuries.

At the scene, Neiley observed three vehicles that were involved in the accident. He made contact with one of the operators as she was being removed from her vehicle by Warwick Fire personnel. The woman had apparently minor injuries.

Neiley observed the woman to have “extremely bloodshot and watery eyes,” and he detected a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath.” She is additionally said to have spoken with slurred speech.

While being prepared for transport to Rhode Island Hospital, the woman is said to have acknowledged consuming alcohol earlier that day. Field sobriety testing could not be administered, but Neiley, based on his observations, placed Debra Lee Ann Viticonte, 61, 807 Scituate Ave., Cranston, under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Upon arrival at the hospital, Viticonte is said to have refused a chemical breath test. She was issued a summons to appear in Third Division District Court on a charge of driving under the influence and cited for refusal to submit to a chemical test and leaving the lane of travel.
