State police say a Chittenden man tried to run over two state troopers with his car striking one of them in the hand.

Authorities say Cody Dion, 19, attempted to flee a suspected underage party on Mountain Top Road in Chittenden Friday night.

That's when they say he ignored orders to get out of his vehicle and struck the trooper and a police vehicle as he drove off.

Police eventually caught up with Dion at his home where he was arrested.

He's charged with assaulting the trooper and leaving the scene of an accident.

Dion is being held at the Marble Valley Correctional Center on 25,000 dollars bail.
