Re: Motor Vehicle Pursuit

On February 11, 2019, members of the North Smithfield police department attempted to stop a motor vehicle on Greenville Road for erratic operation and speeding. The operator of the vehicle, later identified as Michael Torres, age 37, out of North Providence, failed to yield to North Smithfield officers. Based upon the erratic operation of the vehicle, North Smithfield officers pursued the vehicle though several jurisdictions before Torres eventually stopped the vehicle he was operating in the City of Pawtucket. North Smithfield officers were able to take him into custody without incident. Torres was charged with:

Driving Under the Influence
Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test
Reckless Driving
Obstructing an Officer
Giving False Document to a Public Official
Forgery and Counterfieting

Torres was presented for arraignment in Third District Court on February 12, 2019. No plea was entered and Torres was held on $20,000.00 Surety Bail.
