RUTLAND — A high-speed chase involving a stolen vehicle ended in an arrest for 30-year-old Bradley Mullan of Rutland Town on charges including DUI Drugs and grossly negligent operation, authorities said.

On Jan. 27, at about 7:30 p.m., troopers from the Rutland Barracks were alerted to a potentially stolen vehicle leaving the Cortina Inn.

The vehicle’s registration did not match, which led to a traffic stop by troopers using emergency signals on S.

Main St in Rutland City.

Two passengers exited the vehicle during the stop, but as the second passenger disembarked, the driver, later identified as Mullan, sped off, eluding the troopers.

The troopers did not pursue but were soon informed by a resident of a vehicle speeding toward a dead end on Perkins Road in Rutland Town.

Responding to the scene, troopers found the vehicle being driven recklessly.

It crashed into a rock pile in a field, after which Mullan attempted to flee on foot but was swiftly apprehended.

It was confirmed that Mullan had stolen the vehicle from Rutland City.

Upon investigation, Mullan exhibited signs of drug impairment and was subsequently screened and arrested for DUI Drugs.

Rutland City Police also arrived at the scene to assist the troopers with the incident.
