Vermont State Police Log for Apr. 28

ADDISON COUNTY — In four separate recent incidents, Vermont State Police issued three citations for drunk driving and one for possession of child pornography.

In the most recent incident, troopers went to a home on Swinton Road in Bridport to check out a report of a family disturbance on Monday, April 25, at around 9 p.m. As they were arriving, police said they saw Stephen Nuciolo, 43, of Bridport driving a vehicle on Swinton Road. Police said they stopped Nuciolo, and while speaking with him troopers detected indicators of impairment.

They screened Nuciolo, arrested him for suspicion of driving under the influence, and took him to the New Haven barracks for processing, where he refused to provide a sample of his breath. Police released Nuciolo to a sober party with a citation for driving under the influence (DUI), third offense – refusal.

A second DUI citation was issued on April 19, when troopers responded to a one-vehicle crash in Salisbury at a little before 6 p.m. Police said Tara Mackie, 48, of Brandon was driving a vehicle that crashed on Lake Dunmore Road near the intersection with Keewayden Way. Troopers said they detected indicators of impairment in Mackie and they cited her for DUI.

Further back, on March 30, at a little before 7 p.m., a trooper participating in a high-visibility traffic safety patrol saw a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Route 116 in Starksboro. He reported clocking the vehicle at 79 mph in a 50 mph zone. Police stopped the vehicle, identified the driver as Brandon Nielsen, 20, of Starksboro, and noted he didn’t have a valid driver’s license. The trooper also alleged that Nielsen was impaired by a substance other than alcohol.

State police took Nielsen to the Vergennes Police Department for processing, then cited him for driving without a license and DUI. They also issued him a ticket for speeding.

Meanwhile, troopers executed a search warrant at a residence on Villa Drive in Bristol on April 8 at around 7:30 a.m. The warrant was issued as a result of an ongoing investigation into a tip that a Bristol man had child pornography. As a result of the search, police cited Elvis Presley, 69, for possession of child pornography. He is due to answer the charge in Addison County Superior Court, Criminal Division, on July 25.

In other action, troopers on April 25 logged a complaint about an unwanted and prohibited phone call. Police said they learned that Wight Manning, 52, of Waltham, had violated orders of the court by telephoning an individual he was ordered not to. They cited him for violation of conditions of release.

Also on April 25, state police announced at 6:21 p.m. they had closed a portion of Route 116/Case Street in Middlebury. They barred traffic in the area of 1540 Case Street — south of Quarry Road and north of Munson Road — due to a fire hydrant issue resulting from an earlier motor vehicle accident.
