Vergennes Police Log: Vergennes man cited for DUI

VERGENNES — Vergennes police on Jan. 2 cited a city man for driving under the influence of alcohol, an action taken after they received a phone call from a citizen alleging the man had offered the caller alcohol while both drivers were stopped at a stop sign.
