RUTLAND — Early this morning, Trooper Craig Roland, who was assigned to the Rutland barracks, was arrested in Rutland City by the Rutland City Police Department on suspicion of DUI-refusal.
Police say he was off-duty at the time and was released with a citation to appear in court at a later date.
Authorities say Trooper Roland has been placed on paid administrative leave, following protocol under the collective bargaining agreement with the Vermont Troopers’ Association.
An internal investigation will be conducted, police say.
Trooper Roland was hired in January 2017 and was assigned to the Rutland barracks upon his graduation that July from the Vermont Police Academy.
