Motorcycle-riding father, son get community service


WAKEFIELD — A Westerly father and son pleaded no contest in 4th Division District Court before Associate Judge Frank J. Cenerini on Friday to charges resulting from an incident in which a little rowdy motorcycle riding turned into an altercation with police.

Jeffery A. Gulluscio, 57, of 1 Saundra Drive, was charged with obstructing a police officer in execution of duty and resisting legal and illegal arrest, while his son, Jeffery M. Gulluscio, 22, of the same address, was also charged with obstructing an officer.

Westerly officers, according to a report on the Aug. 25 incident, attempted to talk to the younger Gulluscio as he was operating a bike with only one tire and ordered him to shut off the motorcycle. Police said neither man had an endorsement on their license allowing them to legally ride a motorcycles.

Police said the elder Gulluscio revved his engine, and officers demanded he get off the bike. Reports indicate a brief scuffle ensued. At that point, police said Jeffery M. began to get agitated as his father was subdued with cap-stun.

A charge of resisting arrest against the elder Gulluscio was dismissed.

The charges were filed for a year, meaning if the mean remain out of legal trouble, the charges will be expunged from their records.

Meanwhile, Judge Cenerini informed the Gulluscios’ attorney Louis B. Cappuccio Jr., that he was sure the people of Westerly would appreciate if the men contributed to the welfare of the town by each performing 27 hours of community service as part of their sentences. Cappuccio had a counter offer. “How about 10 hours your honor,” he asked.

“How about 10 days in prison,” the judge shot back. The attorney accepted the original suggestion.

Cenerini also suggested that if Jeffery M. was looking for adventure he think about joining the Army and jump out of planes.
