Bristol police make three arrests

BRISTOL — Bristol police arrested three men in the past two weeks for a variety of offenses that were not related to one another.
First came the Sept. 26 arrest of town resident Brian D. Lattrell, 41, on suspicion of driving with a suspended license. Police said Lattrell twice drove to the Bristol Police Department in the preceding days. Two days later, an off duty officer saw Lattrell driving. Lattrell will face three counts of driving with a criminally suspended license when he returns to court Nov. 3.
Police on Oct. 13 arrested town resident Randy Joseph Gorton, 43, on suspicion of violating an abuse prevention order. Around 3:40 that afternoon, a woman called police to report that Gorton had contacted her, in violation of a court order. Police determined that a judge had issued Gorton an abuse prevention order one day earlier, and arrested him. Gorton has three prior convictions for violating abuse prevention orders and one for assault. Because of his previous transgressions, police said prosecutors have upgraded this most recent charge of violating an abuse prevention order as a felony. Gorton was jailed in lieu of $2,500 bail.
Later on Oct. 13, Bristol police arrested a teenager for an outstanding warrant. Police found Zachariah Rusk, 19, in the parking lot of Champlain Farms around 9:40 p.m. Rusk, whose address police did not disclose, had an active warrant for a felony charge of selling drugs to a minor and a felony charge of conspiracy to sell drugs.
Police locked Rusk in the Chittenden County Correctional Center for lack of bail. He’s due in Addison County Superior Court at a later date.
