Vermont State Police: Trooper makes New Year’s Eve bust
ADDISON COUNTY — As 2018 was nearing its conclusion early last week, Vermont State Police stopped a car driven by a Ripton man and gave him a criminal citation to end the year.
On Dec. 31 at approximately 5:45 p.m. troopers from the New Haven barracks stopped 2017 Chevy Cruze on Route 7 in the New Haven. After identifying the driver as 27-year-old Kevin Jackson of Ripton, police determined that his privilege to operate a motor vehicle was civilly suspended in the state of Vermont.
While speaking with Jackson, troopers also detected several signs of impairment, so they screened him for driving under the influence and subsequently arrested him for DUI.
They took Jackson to the barracks for processing and released him after citing him for driving under the influence of drugs.
In activity since the first of the year, Vermont State Police:
• On Jan. 2 at approximately 8:08 a.m. were sent to assist the driver of a motor vehicle that travelled off Hardscrabble Road, near Putty Bed Place, in Monkton.
