Leader of tribal faction arrested outside meeting held by Narragansett chief sachem

 


A scuffle resulting in one arrest broke out at the Narragansett Tribal Office on Route 2 Saturday when a faction that identifies itself as the rightfully elected tribal council tried to enter the building during a meeting led by Matthew Thomas, the current chief sachem.

“There was a list of people who the tribe wanted to keep out,” Charlestown Police Chief Jeffrey Allen said Saturday. “A couple of ladies were out front at a table but we had Charlestown police and tribal police with them to make sure no one gave them a hard time.”
