Misconduct allegation against St. Johnsbury police

Posted: Updated:

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - The police department in St. Johnsbury, Vt., is facing allegations of misconduct that could result in a state police investigation.

The St. Johnsbury Board of Selectmen voted 3-2 recently to request Vermont State Police Commander Tom L'Esperance to consider investigating the department. It followed a complaint by resident Brian Christman that police engaged in misconduct, including filing police reports containing inaccurate information.

The Caledonian-Record reports Christman said it is related to a 2011 disorderly-conduct complaint involving Christman as the accused, and town employee Aaron Rodger.

St. Johnsbury Police Chief Houde said if state police decide to investigate, his department would be more than happy to cooperate.
