The United States Attorney’s Office issues the following statement in reference to the Office’s review of the facts and evidence available regarding the incident that occurred in Providence on October 18, 2020, that seriously injured the operator of a motorized scooter:

“This office has reviewed all of the evidence, interviews, and statements collected and cooperatively shared by the Attorney General’s Office to determine if there is evidence of a federal criminal civil rights violation.
