An Enosburgh man is facing a slew of charges following an alleged fight with troopers on Interstate 89.

Vermont State Police said on Thursday they stopped a car southbound between exits 18 and 19. The driver, Christopher Atkinson, 41, had a suspended license. When a trooper tried to ticket Atkinson, he and his wife allegedly became irate and claimed they were being harassed. Police say Atkinson then tried to hit the trooper with his car door and a roadside fight ensued in the middle of the travel lane.

Atkinson is charged with aggravated assault on an officer resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
