Charges against trio of bottle throwers dropped


WAKEFIELD — A trio of 20-somethings accused of hurling beer bottles, flipping middle fingers and shouting expletives at security officers guarding pop star Taylor Swift’s Watch Hill property had Westerly police charges against them dismissed Thursday in 4th Division District Court.

Tristan J. Kading and Michael Horrigan, both 29, and both of 355 Providence-New London Turnpike, North Stonington, and Emily E. Kading, 26, of 159 Mechanic St., Pawcatuck, were arrested after the incident June 15 and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct. One of the guards near the home’s access to East Beach in Watch Hill said two men and a woman threw beer bottles in his direction and onto the singer’s property.

Swift was not at her home when the incident occurred.

The three, each with their own attorney, appeared separately before Judge Madeline Quirk Thursday when details of the incident were read by Westerly Police Lt. Phil Williams.

The charges were dropped after confirmation that each had contributed $100 to the Rhode Island victims of crime indemnity fund and completed 10 hours of community service.

Because they had already paid $100 in bail as out-of-state residents, that part of the contribution was complete. Where and when their community service was completed was not released.
