Based on the witnessed violation of Title 23 VSA 1035 Troopers conducted a motor vehicle stop. The operator, Panagapoulos, was very angry and began yelling and screaming. While Troopers gathered information from Panagapoulos, the vehicle Panagapoulos had passed showed up and informed Troopers that she had hit their vehicle when she entered back into their lane. While Troopers spoke with the victim, Panagapoulos got out of her vehicle urinated in the front of the store’s parking lot and then returned to her vehicle.
