SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On June 29, 2020 at approximately 6:45 PM Troopers out of the Williston Barracks were dispatched to a report of a single-vehicle rollover crash on Rt. 7 at Church Hill Rd. in Charlotte.
Upon arrival, Troopers spoke with the operator and sole occupant of the vehicle and identified him as 48-year-old Todd Hotaling of Bristol, VT. Hotaling showed several signs of impairment. He was transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center for medical evaluation.
While at the hospital, Hotaling acted in a loud, threatening, and tumultuous manner, loudly using profanities and causing a disturbance in the emergency department. Hotaling also threatened violence against a medical worker. He later assaulted the same medical worker.
After being medically cleared, Hotaling was taken into custody and transported to the Williston Barracks for processing. He was ultimately released with a citation to appear in Chittenden County Superior Court to answer to the charges of DUI #1, Negligent Operation, Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Threatening, and Simple Assault.
