Saturday, May 11

11:25 p.m. – Police arrested Louis D. Paganetti IV, 33, of Pine River Drive, for assault and disorderly conduct after his girlfriend told police he had held her by the hair and punched her during an argument in a car. The girlfriend said she punched and bit Paganetti in self defense. After that, Paganetti left the car. Police found him at his home. After talking to both parties, police decided Paganetti was the primary aggressor so he was charged.  

Monday, May 13

9:25 a.m. – A maintenance worker at Heritage Village on Union Drive told police someone sprayed graffiti on different areas of the building. Police were called back to the area at 2:30 p.m. for a report of more graffiti, this time on a rock in the woods. The paint color was the same from the earlier call.

9:47 a.m. – Police arrested a 17-year-old at North Kingstown High School on charges of delinquent assault and disorderly conduct. The victim told police the suspect hit him three times with his fist. According to police, because of the assault caused serious bodily harm, the 17-year-old’s case will be handled in the state court system. [Ed. note: The original version of this item mistakenly said the suspect used a weapon in the assault. He did not. In addition, because the suspect is a juvenile, he was charged with "delinquent" assault rather than "felony" assault.]

12:01 p.m. – Police arrested James William Pennoyer, 36, of Wright Avenue in Wakefield, for driving with a suspended license after he was stopped because his car did not have an inspection sticker. Pennoyer admitted his license was suspended and police arrested him after that was confirmed. His car was towed from the scene. Later, police noted Pennoyer’s license has been suspended eight times since 1996.

6:18 p.m. – Police arrested Charles Anthony Oberg, 35, of Dayton Court, for assault and disorderly conduct, after his wife said he grabbed her by the arms and pulled her from the kitchen to the living room during an argument over the wife’s admitted infidelity.

9:22 p.m. – Police arrested Daniel R. Regimbal, 47, of Post Road, for driving with a suspended license after police noticed his car veering into other lanes while traveling on Post Road near the State Police barracks. Regimbal said he had been swerving on the road because he was tired and police saw no evidence he had been drinking. He admitted his license was suspended. His car was towed from the scene and he was processed and released with a court summons.

Tuesday, May 14

9:55 a.m. – The school resource officer at NKHS reported hearing from several students that another student had posted pictures on Instagram showing two handguns. Police looked at the pictures, which showed a semi-automatic Beretta-style handgun and a another semi-automatic-style handgun, both “chambered in.” Police talked to the student, who said he’d taken the photos with his father’s permission while at his father’s house. The father, who lives in Exeter, confirmed his son’s story, but said he hadn’t realized his son had posted them to Instagram. He said he would have his son remove the photos.

6:09 p.m. – Two Abby Lane residents told police a suspicious mini-van had possibly tried to lure their 8-year-old children while they were walking on the street. The van was driven by a woman who looked to be alone. She beckoned the children with her finger, but the children became frightened and went to one of the women’s houses to report the incident. The children said it was a white mini-van and that the driver was white and middle-aged, with straight black hair.

10:46 p.m. – Police got a complaint about a trailer parked on a property on Lawton Avenue allegedly being used as a residence. Police found four people in the trailer.

He said he would sleep in his parents’ house from now on.
