Vermont State Police Log: Troopers issue assault citations

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police cited Addison County residents for assault in two separate incidents late last week.
On Thursday, May 18, at 4 p.m. troopers received a complaint about a citizen dispute in the Beaver Lane neighborhood of Monkton. After investigating, police came to believe that Brian Brown, 72, of Ferrisburgh arrived at the residence and was involved in a brief altercation with his tenant, a 50-year-old man.
Police cited Brown for simple assault.
Then on Saturday, May 20, at approximately 3:40 p.m., state police were dispatched to a Route 116 home in Starksboro on the report of a physical altercation. Through investigation police determined that Jasmine Heath, 21, of Starksboro was the dominant aggressor and assaulted a 59-year-old woman. The victim and offender in this case are not related nor are they household members, police noted.
Police cited Heath for simple assault.
In other recent activity, troopers:
•  On May 15 at approximately 10:45 p.m. got word of a family fight at a home on Belden Falls Road in New Haven. Police alleged that Whitney Grady, 37, of New Haven assaulted a household member at the residence by choking them. Troopers cited Grady for domestic assault.
•  On May 16 cited Michael Francis, 56, of Colchester for driving with a criminally suspended license, speeding, grossly negligent driving and attempting to elude a police officer after a high-speed chase in New Haven (see related story by clicking here).
•  On May 17 at approximately 6:51 p.m. received word of a two-vehicle crash on Route 7 in Pittsford. State police report that Stephane Goulet, 37, of Pittsford — a Pittsford police officer — was driving a 2015 Ford Explorer while engaged in motor vehicle enforcement when the Ford was involved in a crash with a 2017 Dodge pickup driven by Burt J. Allen, 72, of Lincoln. Troopers gave no information on the nature of the crash and cast no guilt on either party in their statement, noting only that the Pittsford police officer’s Explorer sustained contact damage to the left front fender and left front wheel and had to be towed and Allen’s pickup sustained contact damage to the right running board and was driven away on its own power; no one was injured. The crash is under investigation.
•  On May 18 at around 9:15 p.m. were advised of a tractor-trailer truck that had gone off the roadway and was blocking the travel portion of the roadway on Route 7 at the intersection of Route 22A in Ferrisburgh. Deshane Largie, 24, of New Britain, Conn., told police that he was driving the truck and attempting to turn left from 22A onto Route 7 and misjudged the corner causing his truck to get stuck. A heavy wrecker was called and pulled the tractor-trailer back onto the roadway. No other vehicles were involved in this incident. Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in this crash. Largie was ticketed for going outside his lane. Vergennes police assisted troopers.
•  On May 21 at 2:43 a.m. stopped a motor vehicle on Satterly Road in Ferrisburgh after observing the vehicle commit multiple traffic violations. Police say the driver, George Bailey III, 49, of Monkton, showed signs of impairment. State police screened Bailey roadside and subsequently took him into custody, processed him for driving under the influence and cited him for DUI.
•  On May 22 at 1:30 a.m. responded to a motor vehicle that had driven off the roadway on Route 7 in New Haven. Troopers said they saw signs that driver James R. See, 27, of Rutland was impaired. Police cited See for driving under the influence of drugs.
