Driving infractions keep troopers busy this week
ADDISON COUNTY — On Sunday, April 6, at approximately 4:05 p.m. Vermont State Police responded to a report of a family fight in Shoreham. Upon investigating the incident troopers said they found that the victim had been assaulted by Shoreham resident Douglas N. Campbell, 36.

In other recent activity, troopers:
