WOONSOCKET â€” One motorist allegedly spit at another during an apparent case of road rage Sunday â€” and he was charged with assault for doing it.
Police said Talubeh Njie, 39, was also arrested for driving without a license when he showed up at police headquarters about 7 p.m.
WOONSOCKET â€” As Gov. Lincoln Chafee and his fiscal advisers looked on, Mayor Leo T. Fontaine disclosed for the first time last night that the School Departmentâ€™s cumulative projected deficit has ballooned to a staggering $10 million for the last two years.
Speaking in the most dire terms, Fontaine laid out a roadmap for program cuts, departmental consolidations and a supplemental tax bill to fill to gap, but he said that any plan of action must be executed very quickly because the city is fast running out of cash and wonâ€™t be able to pay its bills by the end of the month.
