Westerly man facing 3rd domestic charge

WESTERLY — A 33-year-old Wall Street man with an extensive criminal history was charged with felony domestic assault after an incident with a person described as his roommate.

Donald E. Hammond, of 20 Wall St., was charged with violation of protective orders, third offense, and domestic simple assault and/or battery, third offense, after Westerly police were called to the address Monday.

Police report his roommate indicated Hammond had struck him in the face after a verbal argument. Hammond denied the assertion. The alleged victim refused to give a statement but indicated he was hit in the face, according to a police report, and did not require medical attention.

In January 2013, District Court Judge Madeline Quirk issued Hammond a no-contact order with the same person.

In that case, while he was living on North Woody Hill Road in Bradford, he was charged with domestic disorderly conduct, domestic willful trespass, resisting arrest and threats to public officials, after police were called to his apartment for what was described as a domestic incident. Hammond was disorderly, threatening officers’ lives, struggling, screaming profanities, kicking and spitting, according to a police narrative on the incident. Police said they were able to gain control after using pepper spray to subdue him. He was later brought to The Westerly Hospital where he was treated and where more officers were called when he allegedly became disruptive. He was later transferred to the Adult Correctional Institutions.
