Alleged Swift house bottle-throwers plead not guilty


WAKEFIELD — On Friday, Judge Frank J. Cenerini heard not-guilty pleas in 4th Division District Court from three 20-somethings who Westerly police say hurled beer bottles and shouted expletives at security officers patrolling the perimeter of Swift’s property at 16 Bluff Ave. in Watch Hill about a month ago.

The trio, each with a separate lawyer, showed up well-dressed for their court appearance. Michael Horrigan, 29, and Tristan J. Kading, 28, both of 355 Providence-New London Turnpike in North Stonington, and Emily E. Kading, 26, of 159 Mechanic St. in Pawcatuck, were each referred to pretrial services and given waiver-of-extradition allowances because they live in Connecticut. None has a previous criminal record.

Westerly police said they were contacted by one of Swift’s security guards — Ryan Poirier — positioned near the access to East Beach on June 14 and informed that the two males and a female threw beer bottles onto the singer’s property in his direction and then “extended their middle fingers” and shouted the corresponding expletive.

Police said Poirier was able to identify the alleged bottle-throwers, whom he had also photographed on his cell phone. The trio were handcuffed, put into a police cruiser and taken to the police station, where they were arraigned.

In court Friday, each was represented by an attorney. Horrigan, represented by Vincent Indeglia, was released on a promise to appear on July 18 for a pretrial conference. Emily Kading, represented by John M. Ciccilline, and Tristan Kading, represented by Richard H. James, were also released on their own recognizance.
