Vermont State Police Log for May 26

ADDISON COUNTY — Thaddeus D. Slocum walked away from a motorcycle crash in Granville this past Friday evening with only minor injuries, but he still has to answer to the law for how the crash occurred.

On May 20 at around eight minutes before 7 p.m. Vermont State Police responded to a single motorcycle crash on Route 100 in Granville. Troopers report that Slocum, a 23-year-old Randolph resident, was driving the motorcycle faster than the posted speed limit, lost control of his bike, traveled into the oncoming lane, struck a few mailboxes, and was ejected from the motorcycle before coming to an uncontrolled stop.

The motorcycle had extensive damage, which included losing the front wheel assembly.

Police cited Slocum for negligent driving. He is due to answer the charge in Addison County Superior Court, criminal division, on June 13.

Separately, troopers responded to a report of a disturbance at the Whitefish Ranch fishing access in Shoreham at a little after 11 p.m. on Saturday, May 21.

After investigating, police said they concluded that Sean Devoid, 40, of Brandon held a sheathed knife to the neck of Gary Lussier, 28, of Brandon while threatening him. Lussier left the scene with an Addison man, but state police report that Devoid followed them in a vehicle from Shoreham to Middlebury.

Troopers found Devoid at his home, where they arrested him, took him to the New Haven state police barracks for processing, and cited him for aggravated assault and aggravated stalking.

Troopers were assisted by Brandon police.
