Vergennes Police Log: Addison man cited for DUI

VERGENNES — City police on Sunday cited an Addison man for driving under the influence of alcohol, an action that followed a complaint from a Main Street resident about an unwanted knock on her door. 

Cited was Larry B. Chamberlain, 58. Police allege his blood-alcohol content tested at 0.195% when he was processed at the department’s Main Street station. 

Police were called to an apartment building after being told an intoxicated male was sitting in a pickup outside after being refused entry into an apartment. Police allege Chamberlain had driven to the scene before processing him for DUI. 

In other action between Sept. 26 and Oct. 2, Vergennes police conducted three patrols by cruiser and three on foot, three traffic stops and two VIN inspections. In other incidents, police reported the following by date: 

On Sept. 26:

• Spoke to the owner of a loose dog that had allegedly nipped at the heels of a pedestrian.
