SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

               

                On 2/25/17, at approximately 0150 hours, while on patrol in the town of Barton I saw a vehicle stop at the intersection of Water St and Church St. Once the vehicle crossed the intersection onto Elm St it accelerated quickly exceeding the posted speed limit, passed another vehicle traveling in the same direction and continued to travel in the opposite late well past the intersection of Elm St and Park St. I activated my blue emergency lights to conduct a traffic stop for multiple motor vehicle violations. The operator identified himself as Travis Collins of Barton. During the course of the motor vehicle stop I detected the odor of intoxicants. Collins performed field sobriety exercises and declined to submit to a preliminary breath test (PBT).
