Incident Reports

2013 Assault of Joshua Robinson

On March 3, 2013, Robinson ran a stop sign and was pulled over by Sergeant David Allen, who allegedly struck him in the head with a flashlight. Officer Christopher Ziroli arrived, dragged Robinson from his vehicle and punched him in the face. Allen held Robinson in a headlock while Ziroli used pepper spray. Officers Mark Hubbard, Joseph Donnelly, Sean Lafferty, Jerome Lynch, Matthew McGloin, Matthew Rampone, and Clifford Torres arrived and failed to intervene.[3]

Allen claimed that Robinson was attempting to swallow small bags of cocaine, and he used a "pressure point" to try and stop Robinson. When Robinson tried to hit the officer with a closed fist, Allen struck him with a flashlight.[3]

Robinson claimed to hear one officer ask another, "should we call an ambulance or throw him in the river?".[4]

No drugs were found in the vehicle or in Robinson's system.[3]

An internal investigation concluded that the use of force was justified.[4]

The Rhode Island U.S. Attorney's Office concluded that the use of force was justified.[4]

The Rhode Island Attorney General's Office concluded that the use of force was justified.[4]

On March 3, 2016, Robinson sued the city and the officers, claiming violations of his Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights.[5]

In September 2019, the city settled the lawsuit with Robinson for $72,500.[4]
