Vermont State Police Log for Jun. 27

ADDISON COUNTY — Twice in one day last week, Vermont State Police were called to Cornwall to deal with a man who apparently endangering drivers on Route 30 near Swamp Road.

In the first cast on Wednesday, June 19, troopers at 9:05 a.m. responded to a report of a man swinging a hose at traffic on Route 30. Police said they determined that Vincent Gardon, 46, of Cornwall blocked traffic and struck the vehicle of a Bridport woman with a hose, causing damage. After investigating, they cited Gardon for disorderly conduct and unlawful mischief.

Addison County Sheriff’s deputies and Middlebury Regional EMS assisted state police.

Then, a little after 5:30 p.m. that same day, troopers were notified of a suspicious person on Route 30 near the same intersection in Cornwall. Police said their investigation showed that Gardon brandished and discharged a firearm on the shoulder of the state highway, and that he also stood in the middle of Route 30, stopping traffic while waving a firearm. 

They took Gardon into custody and then released him with a citation to appear before in court to answer the charges of unlawful mischief, disorderly conduct and recklessly endangering another person.

In a separate incident later that evening, at around 20 minutes after 9 p.m., troopers from the Royalton barracks responded to a reported domestic assault in Granville. Troopers determined that Jozef Eller, 32, of Granville had caused pain and fear of serious bodily injury to a household member. They arrested Eller, cited him for aggravated domestic assault and released him with conditions.

Separately, state police this week reported that in other recent activity they had cited two people for driving with a criminally suspended license: Donald Douglas, 59, of Colchester on Route 7 at Dog Team Road in New Haven on June 5 at 9:19 a.m.; and Logan Lewis, 23, of Leicester on June 11 at 10:37 a.m. on Interstate 91 in Guilford.
