SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:  On August 07, 2017 a 16 year old juvenile male was stopped on Interstate 91 in Dummerston, Vermont.  The juvenile was observed driving in an aggressive manner.  He passed an unmarked State Police vehicle on the right side at a speed of approximately 100 miles per hour and then continued southbound on the interstate passing cars at speeds ranging between 120 and 125 mph before he was stopped.  The following day the juvenile was issued a juvenile citation for the offenses of Negligent Operation and Excessive Speed.   The juvenile was also issued a civil ticket for No License since he only possessed a valid Learner’s Permit and the only other occupant was another juvenile.   At this time the actual identity of the juvenile is being withheld until the Office of the Windham County State’s Attorney reviews the case and makes a determination in which court the juvenile will be arraigned.  No further information is available at this time.
