Bristol Police Log: Bristol officers help troopers chase car
BRISTOL — Bristol police assisted Vermont State Police on Oct. 5 with a pursuit that ran from Lovers Lane onto Oak Lane.
State police arrested Andrew Malzac, 23, of Bristol for suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to Bristol police, and another person for violating conditions of release.
According to a state police report, a trooper attempted to stop a vehicle after observing a traffic violation, but the vehicle, driven by Malzac, failed to stop when signaled to do so on Lovers Lane. The trooper reported that Malzac failed to comply when informed he was under arrest, and resisted.
State police cited Malzac for attempting to elude a police officer and resisting arrest. He is due to answer the charges in court next week.
