A local man got violent with a probation and parole transport vehicle while being taken to jail. Scott Souliere, 45, of Orleans, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Orleans Superior Court to a felony charge of unlawful mischief and was released on conditions by Judge Lisa Warren. However, Souliere, who has eight prior criminal convictions, remains in jail.

Newport Police Ofc.

Souliere faces a possible sentence of up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000.00 fine if convicted.
