Rhode Island state veterinarian Scott Marshall is defending the actions of his law enforcement officers at a pet show in Providence this past weekend. Some cat owners were angry when environmental police demanded health and rabies certificates.

A Providence school teacher accused of taking a teenage boy to Florida will have a lot of time on his hands when he returns to Rhode Island. 56 year old David Jones has been placed on administrative leave while the Providence School Department launches an investigation.
David Jones may have bailed out of jail over the weekend. The Dade County, Florida jail, where Jones had been detained on $9,000 bond, said it had no one by that name Sunday morning.
