Shortly before 2 am on Sunday morning (Sept 15th 2019) a Shelburne Police stopped a vehicle in response to a driving complaint called in by a motorist.

When officers approached the vehicle, they noted a smell of alcohol coming from the driver.  This resulted in a road side breath test being administered, which the driver failed.
