SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On 5/25/16 at approximately 1419 hours I was conducting speed enforcement on I-91 south in the Town of Dummerston, Vermont. I observed a vehicle traveling south at a high rate of speed. I registered the vehicle at 91 mph. I stopped the vehicle and identified the operator as Francis P Wilkins. Investigation revealed that Wilkins' license was criminally suspended and I also suspected him to be under the influence of alcohol. Wilkins refused to perform roadside sobriety exercises and after being informed that he was under arrest, Wilkins pulled away stating that he was not under arrest. I was able to gain control of Wilkins and transported him the the Brattleboro State Police barracks. Wilkins provided a Preliminary Breath Test which showed his BAC to be .129%.
Following processing at the barracks, Wilkins was issued a citation for Driving Under the Influence and Operation after Suspension. Violations of Title 23 VSA sections 1201 and 674. Additionally, Resisting Arrest, a violation of Title 13 VSA section 3017. Wilkins was also issued a VCVC for Interstate Speeding, a violation of Title 23 VSA 1004.
