SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:
On August 18, 2016, at approximately 18:25 hours, Shaftsbury Troopers responded the North Bennington Variety Store to assist the Bennington Police Department with an active fight involving multiple individuals. 

Further investigation resulted in the arrest of Ryan Kinney, age 41, of Shaftsbury (VT).   Kinney was found to have engaged in a road rage incident, which began on Harrington Road in Shaftsbury and ended at North Bennington Variety in North Bennington. 

Kinney became upset with several occupants in another vehicle, which included a family member of Kinney’s.    Kinney proceeded to chase the vehicle several miles, ramming the vehicle multiple times.  Speeds were estimated to be greater than 80 mph during the incident. 

The road rage incident ended in the parking lot of North Bennington Variety where the occupants of the vehicle Kinney was chasing exited the vehicle and engaged in a physical altercation.

There are no reported injuries at this time.  The involved vehicles both endured significant damage. 

Kinney was taken into custody and processed at the Shaftsbury Barracks.  Kinney was later lodged in the Marble Valley Correctional Center (MVCC) for lack of bail.  Kinney is scheduled to appear in the Bennington County Superior Court/ Criminal Division on August 19, 2016, at 12:30 hours to answer to the above charges.

Kinney’s Mug Shot Attached.
