BREAKING: N.Kingstown Boys Basketball Bus Stopped by Police


Updated at 3:10 pm … The Current has been informed that the bus was stopped by BEFORE last night’s game in Cumberland (not after the game as originally reported), the players in question were taken off the bus by the Athletic Director, suspended for at least that game, and their parents were called to pick them up and take them home.


Original story … 

Multiple sources have informed The Ocean State Current that the bus transporting the North Kingstown boys basketball team after its game in Cumberland last evening was stopped by police.

Allegedly, after the bus was pulled over, at least 5 boys on the team were questioned by police about shoplifting incidents at a Dave’s Market grocery store. One of the boys, according to our sources, was the son of head coach Kyle Bodington. It was also reported that Dave’s Market may not file charges.

This incident is yet another in a long string of examples of dysfunction in the North Kingstown school district and scandals surrounding the boys basketball team.

This past August, the Skippers’ former coach, Aaron Thomas, was criminally charged with child molestation for his alleged “naked body fat test” abuse of boys at the high school. Additionally, ongoing controversies continue to divide the NK school community about misguided and age-inappropriate curricula being imposed on students.
