Vergennes Police Log: Brawling teenagers draw assult citations
VERGENNES — A Jan. 20 brawl among teenagers at a Second Street home led to three citations for domestic assault, Vergennes police said.
Two males cited were juveniles, and thus their names were not released. Police said a citation remains possible against a fourth girl involved in what they called a melee. Cited on the public record was Morgan Valiquette, 18.
