VIDEO: Councilwoman Cicilline-Buonanno Pulled Over On National TV
Monday, August 13, 2018
Cicilline-Buonanno is the sister of United States Congressman David Cicilline.
A&E LIVE PD
A&E Live PD started shooting with Warwick Police earlier this year.
On Friday night, host Dan Abrams says that Cicilline-Buonanno has “already admitted to drinking.”
SEE VIDEO ABOVE — Cicilline segment starts at the 1:08:05 mark.
During the segment, she appears to be unable to follow the police officer -- Matt Moretti's -- direction.
She denies that she takes medication (she shakes her head "no" to the question). Later in the incident, Moretti tells the audience via a car cam that she was released because he believes she was "under medication." It did not appear she took a breathalyzer.
When reached by phone Saturday by GoLocal News Editor Kate Nagle, Buonanno-Cicilline refused to comment.
When reached at home in Narragansett, Cicilline-Buonanno's husband told GoLocal reporter Rachel Nunes the situation had been "blown out of proportion" and refused to let Nunes speak with Cicilline-Buonanno. He ordered Nunes off their property.
