slides: Breaking and Entering Doc Holding Marijuana Suspended by RI HEALTH
Wednesday, September 11, 2013
Department of Health (HEALTH) for breaking into a residence without permission at 3 in the morning and being in possession of marijuana.
Roy M. Main, MD, a physician licensed in the state of RI but with offices in Mystic, Connecticut, entered the home in Westerly, according to documents filed with HEALTH, on August 10 between 3 and 4 in the morning, calling out for a friend named Bill (whose house he thought he was in). The home's owner awoke, subdued Main and held him until police arrived.
Main was arrested for felony breaking and entering. He told police he mistakenly believed he had entered the home of a friend who'd instructed him "to enter a side door of that house." Main entered the wrong house, though, through its garage entrance "because it had no side door."
According to HEALTH, Westerly police found two bags containing about six grams of marijuana in Main's vehicle, which smelled of marijuana smoke.
Main is suspended from practicing medicine in Rhode Island until further order.
