SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On 08/06/16 at approximately 0157 hours, I was traveling north on Goshen Road in the town of Bradford, VT when I observed a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban traveling south on the wrong side of the roadway.  The vehicle forced me to take evasive action to avoid a head on collision. I turned around on the vehicle and observed the vehicle still traveling on the wrong side of the roadway. I executed a traffic stop on the vehicle and spoke with the operator Powell (24). Subsequent investigation revealed Powell to be operating under the influence with a PBT reading of .235%, she was arrested and processed for DUI.
