Vermont State Police Log: Troopers issue drunk driving citations

ADDISON COUNTY — The local state police barracks were relatively quiet this past week in terms of media releases. Troopers reported on only three incidents — two of them were drunk driving incidents.
The first occurred on July 21 at about 40 minutes past midnight, when a trooper pulled over a vehicle driven by Mallory T. Anderson, 25, of Cornwall for allegedly speeding and for crossing the center line on Pearson Road in New Haven. The officer suspected that Anderson was impaired and took her into custody. A preliminary breath sample showed a blood alcohol content of 0.146 percent; the legal limit for driving is 0.08.
Police cited Anderson for driving under the influence, second offense.
The other drunk driving case began at 8:10 p.m. on July 22, when a trooper received a report of a car being driven erratically on Route 116 North in Bristol; the caller said the car was now parked at a restaurant. State police located the vehicle and spoke with the driver, who was identified as Shawn B. Bedard, 25, of Bristol. Bedard provided a preliminary sample of his breath and his blood alcohol content was measured at 0.139 percent.
Police took Bedard into custody for suspicion of DUI and transported him to the New Haven state police barracks for processing.  Bedard was released after being cited for DUI.
The only other incident reported was on July 19, when troopers from the New Haven barracks conducted a conditions of release compliance check in Middlebury. At just before 9 p.m. that night they said they found that 19-year-old Brandon Yandow of Middlebury was not in compliance with his conditions of release. Police located Yandow and cited him for violation of conditions of release.
