This week’s Current Court Report includes arraignments and dispositions from Tuesday’s Nantucket District Court session.
Joshua Gray, 41, of Nantucket, was arraigned on Sept. 4 charges of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of property damage (x2), and a marked lanes violation.

According to the police report, police responded to the area of 12 Milk Street where a red Jeep Wrangler allegedly collided with a fence and left the scene. Gray’s phone was allegedly found at the scene of this crash. Officers followed debris from the crash toward Hummock Pond Road – spotting a snapped bike path sign pole and a tire consistent with a Jeep Wrangler.

Officers followed the scrape mark to a residence on Hawthorne Lane and upon arrival, found a red Jeep Wrangler with front end damage, smoking, and a side rear tire completely gone and resting on the rim. The homeowner allegedly told police the vehicle’s owner was Joshua Gray, who lives in the back room of the residence.
