SOUTH KINGSTOWN A South Kingstown emergency medical technician has had his state license suspended for allegedly purchasing drugs without authorization and injecting someone with pain medications outside of work. But a judge has stayed the order, pending a state hearing.

Joseph Tedeschi of 35 Meadowbrook Way, Peace Dale, is not working on rescue duties pending that hearing, said EMS Director T. Keith Richards.



His job is protected for now, Richards said, adding that the alleged incidents did not occur while Tedeschi was on the job in South Kingstown.
