PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Officials say a Providence police officer will be suspended for two days after closely following a moped rider who crashed and went into a coma. Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare said at a news conference Friday that Officer Kyle Endres is being suspended because he did not drive his cruiser safely and he did not wear a seat belt. He also will undergo retraining. The announcement came a day after Attorney General Peter Neronha announced there would be no criminal charges in connection to the Oct. 18 crash involving 24-year-old Jhamal Gonsalves. The man's family says he remains unconscious in a rehabilitation center.
