Rhode Island State Police arrested a Johnston man on Oct. 10 in response to a warrant for his arrest.

Derek Mackenzie-Stanley, 21, of 20 Mill St., was taken to the ACI, where is awaiting hearings on bail and other violations from past criminal cases, including a 2011 felony assault charge.

Troopers stopped Mackenzie-Stanley on I-95 in West Warwick at 1:45 a.m., and held him overnight at the Hope Valley Barracks on a warrant issued for failure to appear at an ability to pay hearing in Third District Court.

At the time of his arrest, Mackenzie-Stanley was serving an eight-year suspended sentence and eight years' probation on the assault charge. He had already served time for a previous violation of the suspended sentence issued in that case.

The recent warrant was issued in connection with a receipt of stolen goods case brought by Johnston Police in December, 2012. He currently owes $455.50, according to online court records.

Mackenzie-Stanley had also been serving six months' probation and a six-month suspended sentence for disorderly conduct brought by Providence Police. He pleaded no contest to the charge on June 4.
