A fellow motorist called the after allegedly seeing Allen’s car drive off Ten Rod Road and flip two to three times, striking a parked car and landing in someone’s yard. According to the man, Allen was traveling between 40 and 50 mph at the time. When the man pulled over to help, Allen allegedly seemed unsteady on his feet and told him, “Don’t call the cops. I’ve been drinking.” Allen then allegedly grabbed his bumper and spare tire (which came off the vehicle) and placed them in the back of the car before taking off back on Ten Rod Road.
Police pulled Allen over at the intersection of Old Baptist Road and Ten Rod and immediately noticed “heavy damage to the roof and driver’s side” of the car. They also noted that the front driver’s side tire was flat and dirt and grass were stuck in between the window and door moldings. Additionally, the windshield and another window were also shattered.
When police asked him what happened to his car, Allen allegedly appeared confused and said he thought he might have struck a bush. According to reports, Allen told police that he was coming from a house in North Kingstown or Jamestown and was heading to his home in Scituate. Allen also allegedly told police that he had “three shots of rum” that night and that he “drank way too much.” After failing his field sobriety test, Allen allegedly told officers “just give me my ticket.”
