Saturday, Oct. 19

Sunday, Oct. 20

Lee A. Sprague, 59, of 132 Alden Road, Prudence Island, was charged with violating a no-contact order just before 6 p.m. Public Safety Office Glenn A. Young was traveling south on Neck Farm Road on Prudence Island when he observed Mr. Sprague entering a Subaru Outback with what appeared to be a beer bottle in his hand, police said. After Mr. Sprague was warned not to drive with an open container of alcohol in the vehicle, a female appeared and told the officer they were merely cleaning the car together. A records check revealed there was a protection order in place as a result of a previous domestic dispute between the two, according to police.
