North Kingstown man arrested after police chase
After a police chase from East Greenwich to Woonsocket early this morning, Woonsocket Police arrested a 21-year-old North Kingstown man who now faces multiple charges of assault with a dangerous weapon and other charges after allegedly ramming police vehicles.
Rocky Cote, of 42 Iron Horse Terrace, in North Kingstown was arrested by Woonsocket officers after a struggle, Johnston Deputy Police Chief Gary W. Maddocks Jr. said this morning.
The Woonsocket officers used a taser gun to incapacitate Cote, Maddocks said.
East Greenwich police wanted Cote for felony assault on a police officer, Maddocks said.
“It appears that East Greenwich tried to stop him, and he tried to assault the officers with his vehicle,” Maddocks said. Johnston police joined the chase at 12:27 a.m. today.
