Vergennes Police Log: Waltham man nets three citations
VERGENNES — Vergennes police issued three citations to a Waltham man after an incident on Main Street on the evening of May 13.
Police cited Scott Bourdon, 28, for aggravated disorderly conduct, violations of conditions of release, and illegal possession of two prescription drugs.
Police said witnesses saw Bourdon push a woman into a building and then to the ground, although the woman said there was no problem. One witness, police said, alleged that Bourdon made threats to the witness when Bourdon was asked to stop being physical with the woman. Police said the aggravated disorderly conduct charges stem from those actions, while possession of drugs violated the conditions of his release. Bourdon was cited and released.
