VERGENNES — Vergennes police cited a city man for drunken driving, third offense; driving with a criminally suspended license; and simple assault following an incident at the City Limits bar early on Sunday morning. Receiving the three citations was Jason Fuller, 32.
Police said they responded to a report of a fight at the bar, where a victim alleged that Fuller had punched him in the stomach. Police said they found Fuller at a relative’s home in Vergennes and determined that he had driven there and was over the legal blood alcohol limit for driving and had had his license criminally suspended. They then issued the three citations for Fuller to appear in court.
