1 min read

NEWBURY — A Newbury man was apprehended early Tuesday morning after law enforcement officials responded to a call about a vehicle stuck near VT Route 302 and Boltonville Rd.

At around 1:22 a.m., St. Johnsbury Barracks troopers arrived at the scene where they encountered 32-year-old Timothy Kearney.

Kearney initially claimed he was not the driver and was merely attempting to retrieve the vehicle from a snowbank.

However, upon further investigation, authorities determined Kearney had been the one operating the vehicle and had provided false information.

It was also discovered that Kearney’s driving privileges in Vermont were under criminal suspension.

Kearney received a criminal citation to appear in Orange County Criminal Court on April 3 at 8:30 a.m. to respond to charges including false information to law enforcement and criminal driving with a suspended license.

The vehicle was towed from the scene by JTB Towing.

The following day, additional investigation linked Kearney to a road rage incident, resulting in further allegations of reckless endangerment, negligent operation, and disorderly conduct.
