Vermont State Police Log: Four motorists cited for driving under the influence
ADDISON COUNTY — In the last week of January, Vermont State Police working out of the New Haven barracks cited four motorists for driving under the influence of alcohol on Addison County roads.
In the first of these, state police were called to a Bristol home for a reported family fight at a little past midnight on Jan. 28. After investigating, police determined that Claudine A. Bruley, 43, of Bristol had driven home while under the influence of intoxicants. Police found Bruley, and a preliminary breath test showed that her breath alcohol content was 0.176 percent; the legal limit for driving is 0.08. Police cited Bruley for DUI.
A couple hours later, at around 2 a.m. on Jan. 28, a trooper stopped a vehicle after observing multiple traffic offenses on MacDonough Drive and Sand Road in Ferrisburgh. After police saw driver Evan Fleming exhibiting signs of impairment, they screened him for DUI and tested his breath. The preliminary test showed that Fleming, 25, of Ferrisburgh, had a breath alcohol content of 0.194 — more than twice the legal limit. Police cited Fleming for DUI.
The following evening, at 10:45 p.m. on Jan. 28, made another traffic stop on a vehicle after observing multiple traffic violations — this time on Old Hollow Road in Ferrisburgh. State police report that a preliminary roadside test showed that driver the driver, identified as Scott Pulling, 39, of Addison, had a breath alcohol content of 0.166. Police cited Pulling for DUI.
Finally, on Jan. 29 at 2:21 a.m. state police stopped another vehicle that led to a DUI charge.
