SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

On September 24, 2022, at approximately 2331 hours, Troopers from the Vermont State Police Rutland Barracks observed a vehicle operating at a high rate of speed and attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop. Instead of stopping the vehicle accelerated and drove in a grossly negligent manner while failing to stop for the blue lights and fully marked State Police cruiser. A short time later police received a report that the vehicle had crashed into the woods not far from where the vehicle had fled from the traffic stop. The vehicle was located, and the operator was identified as Chad Young. While speaking with Young, signs of impairment were observed. Young refused Standardized Field Sobriety Tests roadside and was subsequently taken into custody for driving under the influence. Young was transported to the Rutland State Police Barracks for processing and later released on a citation to appear in Rutland County Superior Court, Criminal Division to answer for the charge of DUI refusal, eluding a police officer, and grossly negligent operation.
