Barrington police responded to the area outside the Shaw’s Supermarket in the Barrington Shopping Center last week for a panhandler on the premises.

The call was received at about 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 15, and officers arrived at the scene a short time later. They reportedly located the man outside the Shaw’s and could immediately smell a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. Police said the man also appeared to be staggering badly.

The 55-year-old East Providence was later transported to an area hospital for evaluation. He was not charged.

    If there was no charge…then why is this news?
    I’m sure atleast have a dozen more interesting calls were made by the Barrington PD that had actual charges, that could have made better news than this non-story.
