More of the Wedding Day Melee last weekend in Newport.
Oh lookie here. The bride’s parents show up in this newly obtained video and THEN the bride HITS a Newport cop in the face. You’ll see it at the very beginning of the video. Kylie Swain, the bride who is still in her dress, strikes a Newport police officer in the face while her father is intervening.
This just keeps getting more interesting.
Kylie Swain is due back in Newport District Court on September 27th.
Alexandria Flaherty and Robert Nash of Marshfield, MA both entered no pleas as their cases were forwarded on Superior Court for Felony screening on November 2nd. They were both released on $5,000 bail.
David Onik of Barrington, RI (he’s the clown who allegedly started the whole thing by fighting with the bouncers at The Landing when they wouldn’t let him in) pleaded not guilty and was released on $1,000 bail. His next court date will be October 4th.
Rachael Onik of Barrington, RI (she’s the who tried to take the cop’s gun as alleged in the police report) pleaded not guilty and was released on $1,000 bail. Her next court date will be October 4th.
Olivia Costello of Milton, MA pleaded not guilty and was released on $1,000 bail.
The sixth defendant, Kylie Swain (who was the bride) won’t be arraigned until September 27th because she’s rumored to be on her honeymoon in Greece.
Oh PS – The Mayor of Newport Xay Khamsyvoravong incredibly overstepped his role with the city and tried to insert himself in this situation for political points by pretending he was in control, when in fact by city charter the City Manager is in charge and the mayor has ZERO role.
You can listen to my interview with 630 WPRO’s Dan Yorke below. The part where we discuss the mayor starts at 8:15
