SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

               

                On 10/10/2016, at approximately 1741 hours, while on patrol in the town of Coventry I stopped a vehicle for an expired registration. I activated my blue emergency lights to conduct a traffic stop. The operator verbally identified himself as Robert Sykes of Irasburg, VT. While speaking with Sykes I detected the odor of intoxicants. Sykes performed field sobriety exercises and declined to submit to a preliminary breath test (PBT). A check of Skyes’ license revealed he was under criminal suspension. Sykes was subsequently placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI & driving with a criminally suspended license. Sykes was transported to the Derby State Police Barracks where he was processed for the above offense. Sykes was lodged at Northern State Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000.00 bail.
