WILLISTON — A 23-year-old man from Northfield was arrested following an incident in Williston yesterday.

Authorities say they were notified of a vehicle stopped partially in the left lane of I-89 south at around 4:50 p.m.

The driver appeared to be experiencing a medical event.

Police say they responded with fire and rescue and identified the driver as Gage Buchanan.

While speaking with Buchanan, police say they suspected that he was under the influence and attempted to take him into custody.

This led to him allegedly kicking two troopers and biting another.

After a brief struggle, Buchanan was taken into custody and transported to UVM Medical Center for treatment.

He was transported to the Williston State Police barracks for processing.

He was released into the custody of a sober adult with a criminal citation to appear in court at a later date.

Buchanan faces charges of DUI #1, two counts of assault on law enforcement, and two counts of assault on law enforcement with bodily fluids.
