Police say a Vermont State trooper was assaulted while responding to a domestic dispute.
Investigators say Adam Verge, 30, of Island Pond, broke into his ex-wife's home in Brighton early Thursday morning and began to destroy property.
Trooper Debra Munson arrived and attempted to take Verge into custody. He resisted and at one point had the trooper in a choke hold. She managed to break free and after a chase, took Verge into custody. The trooper had minor injuries.
Verge is charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
