WARWICK, RI— Cranston Police have arrested two more Warwick men involved in the New Year’s Day ATV/motorcycle gang ride that included an attack of a CPD officer.

Colonel Michael Winquist, Cranston Police Chief, announced the arrest of Nicholas Capuano, 26, of 168 Kerri Lyn Road, Warwick and Scott Campbell, 20, of 1811 Warwick Ave. Warwick, RI, who each admitted being part of the “illegal, organized and reckless” ATV/Motorcycle ride.

Cranston Police Detectives’ investigation of the ride led to an arrest warrant for both Capuano and Campbell on charges of Reckless Driving. Both were part of an organized group of about 30 ATV/Motorcycles riding north on Atwood Avenue, refusing to stop for police after one of them deliberately ran over an officer’s legs. Capuano and Campbell, according to the CPD, rode recklessly around vehicles, passing vehicles at a high rate of speed and going the wrong way at times, pulling wheel stands and eluding police. The incident was caught on video surveillance footage. Capuano and Campbell admitted to their involvement after arrest and were both arraigned and released on Jan. 13.

“There will be more arrests coming as detectives continue to dissect this incident. We have identified two additional suspects in which one is responsible for kicking at and attempting to assault the officer who was arresting Shyanne Boisvert during the original incident. The two additional suspects have arrest warrants out for them and we will identify them once apprehended,” said CPD Maj. Patalano.
