VERGENNES — Vergennes police in two separate incidents this past weekend ticketed five minors for alcohol use and issued them court diversion paperwork, and in one also cited a 21-year-old motorist for driving under the influence of alcohol and providing alcohol to minors.
In that June 8 incident police stopped a car on Green Street after receiving a report from Button Bay State Park that an underage drinking party had been broken up there. Following that traffic stop, police cited Anthony Kimball, 21, of Middlebury for DUI, alleging that his blood-alcohol content tested at just over the legal limit at 0.085 percent, and for providing alcohol to minors.
Three minor occupants of the car were ticketed for consumption of alcohol, said police, who issued them court diversion paperwork.
On June 9, police spotted and approached a suspicious car on MacDonough Drive and received consent to search it. Two occupants were ticketed and issued paperwork for underage drinking, while police said a third occupant will probably be ticketed for possession of marijuana.
