Vermont State Police: Troopers cite man for three violations
ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police troopers were driving northbound on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh at around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3, when they saw several traffic violations and stopped a car driven by Kyle Reilly, 29, of Williston.
Police report that during the stop Reilly attempted to provide a false identity to the troopers. While looking into his background, troopers said they learned that Reilly’s driver’s license was under criminal suspension.
While speaking with Reilly, troopers also detected signs of impairment, so they screened him for driving under the influence (DUI), arrested him, and took him to the Vergennes Police Department for processing.
State police released Reilly after citing him for driving under the influence of drugs, providing false information to police and driving with a criminally suspended license. He is due to answer the charges in Addison County District Court, Criminal Division, on April 8.
Traffic tickets are pending.
