SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

                On April 9, 2017 Brattleboro PD responded to High Street in Brattleboro

to investigate a complaint in which a resident was concerned that Liliana

Vandertuin was harassing him by being parked outside his residence.  Brattleboro

Officer Amy Fletcher approached Vandertuin's vehicle to speak with her and

Vandertuin refused to roll her window down to speak with the officer.

Vandertuin drove away from the officer and drove over her foot while doing so.

Vandertuin fled the scene and was unable to be located. Vermont State Police

were called in to assist with the investigation.  Vandertuin was located at the

Colonial motel in Brattleboro later that evening and was taken into custody by

troopers without incident.  Vandertuin was ordered to be held at the

correctional facility for lack of $750.00 bail and is scheduled to appear in

Windham County Court on April 10, 2017 to answer the charges of Aggravated

Assault and Violation of Conditions of Release.  Officer Fletcher was released
