Vermont State Police Log for Apr. 21

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.

Troopers found and stopped the vehicle in the Woodchuck Cidery parking lot in Middlebury.

Police report that the driver, identified as Dylan Racine, 32, of Orwell, showed indicators of impairment. Racine refused to be screened and was placed under arrest. Troopers took Racine to the New Haven barracks for processing, where he refused to provide a breath sample.

Due to his level of impairment, police took Racine to the Northwest State Correctional Facility with a citation to appear in Addison County Superior Court, Criminal Division, on May 2 to answer the charge of driving under the influence, second offence, refusal.

The next day, April 17, at about 3:45 p.m., troopers were notified that a vehicle sitting on the side of Route 7 in Salisbury had two people inside and they were unresponsive. Troopers, along with an Addison County Sheriff’s deputy, found the vehicle. State police ended up citing Michael Baer, 56, of South Burlington for driving under the influence of drugs.
