Vergennes Police Log: City police take N.Y. driver off the road
VERGENNES — Vergennes police arrested a New York resident for driving under the influence of alcohol, test refusal, and resisting arrest early in the morning on May 8, and also took a passenger in the car for alcohol detoxification.
Police stopped a car on West Main Street that they said was weaving and varying speed, and said the driver, Lindsey Moore, 26, of Saratoga, N.Y., failed roadside sobriety testing. Police allege she then refused official DUI testing, refused to come to the city police station, and began fighting with police officers.
They then arrested her, cited her for DUI refusal and resisting arrest, and lodged her at the Chittenden County Correctional Center. Police also took a passenger, whose blood-alcohol content they said tested at more than three times the legal limit for driving, to the Burlington Act 1 detoxification facility.
