Convicted DUI driver, 68, arrested again


RICHMOND — A Hope Valley man who last year was so frail a judge allowed him to be seated while he listened to the charges against him in District Court has again been arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, blood alcohol content unknown, and refusal to submit to a chemical test to determine intoxication.

Albert T. Clerrico, 68, of 894 Main St., was charged Friday after Richmond police said they received several 911 calls reporting a possible drunk driver crossing over into the wrong lane of travel on Main Street in Wyoming. Witnesses flagged down Patrolman Daniel Kelley after Clerrico pulled into the parking lot of the Wyoming Package store.

Richmond police said witnesses told them that, minutes earlier, Clerrico had driven into the oncoming lane of travel on Main Street in Hope Valley, hitting another vehicle and fleeing the scene without stopping.

Hopkinton police charged Clerrico with leaving the scene of an accident with damage to another vehicle.

Clerrico was taken to the Richmond police station where he was arraigned before Justice of the Peace James Callaghan on the DUI charge, along with the separate Hopkinton charge. Clerrico was unable to post the requisite surety bail of $5,000 and was transported to the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston for an upcoming court date.

Clerrico was convicted of DUI in September 2013, and was arrested again by Hopkinton police on May 14 and charged with DUI, second offense.

Clerrico pleaded no contest to a Hopkinton police charge of domestic simple assault and/or battery last year and was sentenced to one year of probation, having had a previous charged of bothering a flight attendant on his record, according to the town prosecutor.
