RUTLAND — A Rutland man was arrested early Tuesday morning on numerous charges including DUI drugs and possession of cocaine after he attempted to elude police and crashed his vehicle.

David Farnham, 44, initially fled from a Vermont State Police motor vehicle stop on Allen Street around 1:18 a.m. The vehicle was soon involved in a single-car accident on Freeman Avenue, where Farnham left the scene on foot.

Troopers located Farnham shortly after on Stratton Road, a short distance from the crash.

Following an investigation, they identified him as the driver.

Farnham displayed signs of impairment and was taken into custody.

Further inquiries revealed that Farnham was driving with a criminally suspended license and violating conditions of release from a previous incident.

He is now facing multiple charges, including DUI drugs, attempting to elude, possession of cocaine, violation of conditions of release (VCOR), leaving the scene of an accident, and criminal driving with a suspended license (DLS).

Farnham was processed at the Vermont State Police Rutland Barracks following his arrest.
