ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police troopers operating out of the New Haven barracks said they issued two drunken driving citations between April 12 and 19.
In the first incident, on April 16 at around 6 p.m. officers responded to several reports of a person slumped over the steering wheel of a vehicle stopped near Route 7 and River Road in New Haven. While police were en route, callers reported that the vehicle had started heading south.
