'I Was Sleeping The Whole Time'
Brian Patrick Holden, 36, of 60 Haverhill Ave. in North Kingstown was arrested Oct. 3 at 10:58 p.m. on charges of domestic vandalism and domestic disorderly conduct.
Holden was allegedly under the influence and damaged two doors at his residence. According to reports, he became infuriated after police visited the home around 9:30 p.m. for reports of a disturbance and began yelling and swearing at his girlfriend. He tried to enter the bedroom she was in and damaged the door in the process, according to police. His girlfriend told police that he then went back downstairs and continued screaming. At one point, she heard a loud thud: police allegedly determined that Holden had punched another door.
When police arrived at the residence a second time, they found Holden sitting on the front steps. He allegedly told them he had been in bed the whole time and accused the officer of harassing him. (According to reports, the responding officer had arrested Holden the year prior on domestic violence charges.)
