WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Police say an employee with the Department of Children, Youth and Families is facing charges stemming from a “road rage” incident involving a state-owned van.

Police say 55-year-old Richard Davis was tailgating another vehicle Tuesday morning on Interstate 95 south before “cutting off” the other vehicle and abruptly slamming on his brakes. Police say the other car hit Davis’ van and two other cars. Police say the van is registered to DCYF.

Davis was arraigned on a charge of reckless driving in Kent County District Court, where he pleaded not guilty.

He is due back in court March 16.

A spokesman for DCYF says Davis has worked for the child welfare agency since 1983. He says Davis has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.
