Middletown Police say the 31-year-old Coventry man obstructed traffic at Main and Green Streets and Rapallo Avenue at 12:30 in the morning.

Middletown Police report the following incidents:

POSSESSION CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE, AND WITH INTENT TO SELL, AND WITHIN 1,500 FEET OF SCHOOL — On Nov. 23 at 6 p.m., Jaki Highsmith, 23, of Rose Circle was seen by police exiting the house and driving away in a Dodge Caliber parked on Rose Circle. He was seen using a cell phone; police stopped him at Spring and High streets. Officers smelled marijuana in the car then saw a baggie of it containing 10.10 grams inside the car, along with smaller bags with some inside. At headquarters, he told police he had only been selling for a week, then later said a month. Officers found text messages in his phone about drugs.

DISORDERLY CONDUCT — On Nov. 22 at 12:21 a.m., police were called to Eli Cannon’s for a highly intoxicated patron refusing to leave the outside property after being forcefully removed. Michael A. Garcia, 31, of Farms Road, Coventry, was told to wait for a cab across the street; he then stopped in the middle of Main and Green streets and Rapallo Avenue, obstructing traffic. It was raining heavily. He was sent to Middlesex Hospital for detox.

OPERATION MOTOR VEHICLE WHEN LICENSE SUSPENDED, AND UNREGISTERED VEHICLE — On Nov. 21 at 1:35 a.m., police saw Rondel Chapman, 30, of Grand Street driving a Honda Pilot on Grand Street with an expired license. Chapman told officers he was driving because the owner wasn’t feeling well; police saw they both were eating McDonald’s fast food they had just picked up.

IMPROPER USE MARKER PLATE, INSURANCE COVERAGE FAILS MINIMUM, OPERATE UNREGISTERED VEHICLE — On Nov. 19 at 7:45 p.m., Brendy C. Bridger, 35, of Bailey Road was driving a Chevrolet Blazer in front of a cruiser with a plate registered to an Audi Allroad. He said he was having problems with his Audi and needed to get around so he put the plates on his Blazer.

POSSESSION CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE, FAILURE TO CARRY LICENSE, IMPROPER PARKING — On Nov. 19 at 4:41 p.m., Steven Holloman, 49, of Chauncey Road was driving a Dodge Durango stopped on Grand Street in the no-parking zone with a male and female at the passenger side front window talking to him. It was blocking the eastbound lane of travel, causing cars to drive in the oncoming traffic lane to bypass it. Holloman, police say, couldn’t find his driver’s license of paperwork; in the center console police saw a clear plastic baggie with a white oblong pill with blue speckles and powder residue. Police found it was Adipex-P, which is similar to an amphetamine used for weight loss. He did not have a prescription, the report says.
