Vermont State Police Log for Sept. 1

ADDISON COUNTY — In separate recent cases, Vermont State Police arrested three Addison County men and ended up citing two for domestic assault and the third for stalking.

In the first incident, troopers on Aug. 22 received a complaint of a family disturbance eight days earlier in Orwell. Police investigated and determined that Jeffrey Fielden, 37, of Orwell had physically injured a household member, and that Fielden had prevented the household member from calling for assistance and from leaving the residence. On Aug. 23 Fielden turned himself in at the New Haven state police barracks, where he was arrested and taken to the Addison County courthouse to answer the charges of domestic assault, unlawful restraint and interference with access to emergency service.

On Aug. 23 at a few minutes before 6 p.m. troopers responded to a report of a family fight at a Route 22A home in Panton. Police said they looked into the incident and concluded that Richard Marszalkowski, 59, of Panton had caused bodily injury to a household member. Troopers took Marszalkowski to the barracks and cited him for domestic assault.

Also on Aug. 23, state police got a call at around 10:30 p.m. from a Waltham woman who reported that a man was repeatedly showing up at her home after being told to stay away. Troopers cited Michael Roberts, 62, of Ferrisburgh for stalking.

In other recent activity,

  • On Aug 24 at 8:48 a.m. responded to an SUV-truck crash on Route 22A at Addison Four Corners. Police report that Daniel Cohen, 71, of Burlington was driving a 2000 Freightliner tractor-trailer northbound on Route 22A, and Beth Waters, 42, of Port Henry, N.Y., was stopped in a 2017 Nissan Rogue on Route 17 as the truck rumbled past. Police said Waters’s Nissan entered the intersection and collided with one of the rear driver’s side tires on the truck. Waters sustained suspected minor injuries, and her vehicle was totaled.

Route 22A in the area of the crash was temporarily reduced to one lane of travel during this incident.

Police said neither speed nor impairment were contributing factors in this crash.

The Vergennes Ambulance Rescue Squad and the Addison Volunteer Fire Department assisted state police in cleaning up this crash.

  • On Aug. 28 at around 10 30 p.m. observed a truck operating at a high rate of speed through Middlebury. When troopers turned on the blue lights and tried to stop the truck the driver attempted to make a right hand turn onto Weybridge Street from College Street and subsequently crashed into a vehicle stopped at a stop sign.

While speaking with the operator of the truck, troopers observed signs of impairment and attempted to take Michael Broulliard, 28, of Middlebury into custody. Police said Broulliard actively resisted them, but ultimately they prevailed, got him into the cruiser and took him to the New Haven barracks without further incident. They cited Broulliard for gross negligent driving, resisting arrest and driving under the influence, second offense. They also issued him a ticket for driving outside his lane.

Troopers were assisted on scene by members of the Middlebury police and fire department, and by Middlebury Regional EMS.

  • Announced that they are looking for help from the public. On Aug. 23 they received a report of a mountain bike stolen from the Blueberry Hill Inn in Goshen sometime between Aug. 21 and 23. The bike was described as a camouflage green Specialized Stumpjumper Comp Alloy. Anyone with information related to this theft is asked to contact Trooper Anthony at the New Haven barracks at 802-388-4919.
