WOONSOCKET â€“ A man whose lower lip had been pierced for jewelry in at least 10 spots had to be taken to the hospital when the cosmetic incisions started bleeding following a scuffle with police early Monday.
Justin M. Lawler, 25, and his girlfriend, Amanda Jeanne Glode, 29, both of 425 Diamond Hill Road, were both arrested shortly before 2 a.m.
Police said they were investigating a complaint of breaking and entering when they visited the coupleâ€™s third-floor apartment. The complaint was filed by Glodeâ€™s cousin, a woman in her 20s who lives in another apartment on the same floor.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Itâ€™s primary day in the city, an all-Democratic affair that features seven candidates vying for three spots in the General Assembly.
