North Providence man arraigned on fugitive of justice charges


NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A North Providence man who failed to appear in a Massachusetts court was arraigned in Rhode Island on Tuesday.

Andre Scott, 25, was arrested Saturday morning in North Providence after missing a court appearance last Friday, according to Norton Police.

He was arraigned on fugitive of justice charges in Rhode Island.

In Massachusetts, Scott is facing assault and battery charges after officials claimed that they have evidence he attacked three patients at a group home in Norton where he worked.

Police say Scott has waived his extradition rights and is expected to be brought back to Massachusetts to face charges.
