Alcohol-Driven Bowling Lane Disturbance

East Providence police charge man and woman with disorderly conduct after a yelling and screaming incident with a group of 'Asians'.

An alcohol-fueled disturbance at East Providence Lanes in Rumford last Tuesday night, Nov. 6, ended with a man and a woman being charged with disorderly conduct.

Donald J. Lacasse, 24, of Downs Avenue in Pawtucket, and Lynnsey M. Dailey, 29, of Broad Street, Cranston, were charged after East Providence police responded at about 10 pm.

Lacasse and Dailey allegedly were involved in a disturbance at the bowling lanes with a group of about 20 people described as of Asian descent by police. Police said everyone was screaming and yelling at each other when patrol officers arrived.

Officers separated Lacasse and Dailey from the disturbance one at a time. Each was described as having been drinking and making disparaging remarks at the Asians, police said. Lacasse had a bloody lip reportedly from falling on a bowling ball.

Lacasse was described as drunk and particularly belligerent to police, according to the arrest report. He repeatedly yelled profanities at the police officers, according to the arrest report.

Dailey, too, was belligerent to the police officers and also made profane comments, according to the arrest report.

None of the other participants in the disturbance were charged.

Lacasse and Dailey were handcuffed and taken to the police station and charged. They were held overnight and released the following morning with dates to appear in District Court.

EP Lanes has had a spiral downfall, the staff in place is just awful,no one seems to know anything,they are short staffed and what staff they do have in place haven't a clue! As soon as the 2012-13 bowling season ends I am moving my team to another center for many many reasons starting with the staff to the lanes to the overall service of everyone there. No one cares and it shows!

It's obvious since management changed here at EP Lanes the place has had more issues than issues! People have complained to ownership, employees and NOTHING is done about any of it! Sadly good people have lost their employment, the people with the knowledge of the game are gone but EP Lanes continues to overserve the public with NO recourse! Good luck EP Lanes,soon you may find yourself hmmmmm oh well!!!!
