Church Street man arrested after allegedly punching dad, neighbor


BURRILLVILLE – An evening at Spritzer’s bar ended with an arrest for a 28-year-old Burrillville man accused of assaulting his father.

Kyle Lafrenaye of Church Street was charged with domestic simple assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct following the incident on Monday, Jan. 21.

According to the arrest report, Off. Eric Harris was driving along Church Street when he spotted Lafrenaye, who appeared to be arguing with his 40-year-old neighbor.

The neighbor told police that Lafrenaye had pushed him several times, causing him to fall.

Following interviews of the subjects, police noted that all parties involved with the incident seemed to have been drinking, but Lafrenaye was yelling, and his behavior is described as “incoherent,” “completely illogical,” “erratic,” and “hostile.”

“Lafrenaye became agitated for no reason and spiked his own phone onto the living room carpet as if it were a football in the end zone,” one report noted.

Lafrenaye’s father told police he had been at Spritzer’s bar on Grove Street with his son, but left after Kyle punched him in the face, leaving the laceration that police spotted on his nose. He said he did not want to press charges.

Police noted that Lafrenaye would not cooperate with officers trying to detain him.

Lafrenaye was held overnight, brought before a bail commissioner the following morning, and later remanded to the Adult Correctional Institute as a probation violator.
