Shaw had active court-ordered conditions of release to include a curfew and a condition not to consume alcohol.

He sustained minor injuries during the crash and was transported by Newport EMS to North Country Hospital.

While at the hospital police say they determined Shaw had consumed alcohol prior to crashing, and Trooper Rice stated that Shaw began to act in a “tumultuous, threatening behavior and was using obscene language.”

After Shaw was released from the hospital, he was transported to the Derby Barracks for processing.

He is facing charges of DUI, negligent operation, disorderly conduct, and violation of conditions of release.
