FERRISBURGH — A 34-year-old man was arrested on multiple charges following an incident in Ferrisburgh yesterday.

Police were notified to be on the lookout for a vehicle seen leaving a home on Middlebrook Road at around 9:40 p.m.

The caller told police that they believed the operator of the vehicle was intoxicated.

Police say they converged on the area in an attempt to locate the vehicle and within several minutes were notified of a two-vehicle crash on US Route 7, by Middlebrook Road.

Police identified the driver of the vehicle they were looking for as Justin Kramer, of Ferrisburgh.

According to the report, while travelling north on US Route 7, Kramer’s vehicle went left of center and sideswiped a tractor-trailer travelling south, narrowly avoiding a head-on collision.

Following an investigation, it was found that Kramer had been driving the vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

He was arrested without incident and transported to UVM Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries received as a result of the crash.

Police say while at UVM Medical Center Kramer became belligerent and repeatedly used loud and obscene language in the hospital waiting room.

After being treated for his injuries and processed for the DUI, Kramer was released into the custody of Act One for detox with a criminal citation to appear in court at a later date.

He is facing multiple charges which include DUI #1, careless and negligent operation, and disorderly conduct.

Police say the driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured as a result of the crash.

A loaded gun was also recovered from within Kramer’s vehicle, police say.

According to the report, additional charges related to this are pending from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
