WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) — A well-known NBA trainer from Warwick was arrested Friday on allegations of drugging and raping a victim in Downtown Boston, police said.

Robert McClanaghan, 43 of Warwick, was arrested in East Greenwich after a warrant was issued out of Boston Municipal Court the day before.

According to police, McClanaghan was brought to the Warwick Police Department by the BPD Fugitive Unit for booking.

Although details surrounding what happened are still unclear, the Boston Police Department is asking that people be aware of the dangerousness of date rape drugs such as GHB and Ketamine.

Drugs like these can cause a number of symptoms including disorientation, temporary paralysis, and unconsciousness.

Further, the Boston Police Department is advising people to:

  • Use a “buddy system” to prevent getting separated in social gatherings
  • Be sure that your drink is directly served to you from the bartender
  • Never leave your drink unattended
  • Keep your hand over your drink when you aren’t looking at it
  • Test your drink with test strips or nail polish that changes color when drugs are detected
  • Seek help immediately if you begin to feel strange in any way

McClanaghan is set to be arranged Monday morning at Kent County Court.
