Four Johnston residents were arrested by Rhode Island State Police in separate incidents on Thursday and Sunday.

Troopers from the Lincoln Woods Barracks arrested Jennifer Zambarano 33, of 8 Baker St. on a warrant issued by Third District Court, Warwick, for failure to appear for an ability to pay hearing on one count of driving under the influence brought by State Police.

According to police reports, officers stopped Zambarano's vehicle on Veterans Memorial Parkway in East Providence at about 10 am Sunday. In a hearing held at the Lincoln Woods Barracks, Zambarano posted bail and was released pending an as-yet unscheduled court hearing.

Online court records show that Zambarano pleaded no contest to one count of DUI and one count of refusing to submit to a chemical test on Apr. 27, 2009. Judge Frank Cenerini dismissed the refusal charge, and sentenced Zambarano to 20 days' home confinement, 20 hours of community service, and a one-year loss of her driver's license.

Cenerini issued the warrant on Aug. 11; Zambarano owes $170.50 in fines and court costs.

Early Sunday morning, Rhode Island State Troopers arrested Christopher M. Bordieri, 40, of 8 Beacon St., on a charge of DUI, first offense. 

Officers from the Wickford Barracks stopped Bordieri's car on I-295 in Johnston at about 3:15 am and recorded BAC levels of .181 and .182 in separate tests, according to police reports.

Bordieri was held pending arraignment.

On Oct. 25 at 11:50 am, troopers arrested Derek Calabro, 38, of 51 Oak Hill Drive, on a warrant issued by Narragansett Police for one count of violating banking laws following a traffic stop on I-95 in Providence.

Officers transported Calabro to the Lincoln Woods Barracks for processing, then turned him over to Narragansett Police.

Members of the Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Mark Costa, 39, of 1250 Plainfield St., on Thursday on a warrant issued by Providence Police for a misdemeanor charge of simple assault.
