Man Allegedly Tells Police He 'Deserved' DUI Charge
Alex Tente Duffy, 21, of 58 Dawn Marie Ct. in North Kingstown was arrested Feb. 18 at 2:34 .m. on charges of driving under the influence.
After finding a lone tire and hubcap in the middle of Tower Hill Road, police found Toyota Corolla in the Dave’s Marketplace parking lot that was missing a rear passenger side tire. According to police, the driver (Tente) told police he was driving home from Gillian’s Ale House but pulled over because he “felt weird.” Due to the fact that Tente appeared to be under the influence, and that his car was missing a tire, police asked Tente to perform a field sobriety test.
After allegedly failing the test, Tente took a preliminary breath test, during which his blood alcohol content measured at .240. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and taken to the North Kingstown Police Department. There Tente’s blood alcohol content measured at .245, .216 and .240. (A third breath test was needed after Tente allegedly put his hand over the mouthpiece and stopped blowing during the second test.)
After his breath tests, officers informed Tente he was being charged with a DUI, to which he allegedly replied, “I deserved it.”
Jose Donald Defaria, 23, of 13 Union Drive, Apt. 108 in North Kingstown was arrested Feb. 19 at 10:10 p.m. following a bench warrant for his arrest after he failed to appear in court to face charges of domestic assault.
