1:02 p.m. – After getting a report about a woman possibly drunk near Ten Rod Road and Quaker Lane, police found a man and a woman on the grass near the Dunkin' Donuts. The woman, from Huntington Beach, California, told police she'd had a seizure but that she was ok. She refused treatment. Police realized the two were the same people for whom Stop & Shop had requested no-trespass orders, because they had been soliciting money from customers outside the store. The man gave police a West Kingston address. The orders had not been delivered because the two people had not been located. Police now issued the no-trespass orders.
