HARDWICK, Vt. (WCAX) - A Hardwick man will be in court Wednesday after Vermont State Police say he used an excavator to try to stop troopers from arresting a suspect.

Police say they went to a home on Scott Road in Hardwick Tuesday to investigate an aggravated assault and a burglary.

Officers say Wayne Tallman, 52, got into an excavator and moved the bucket recklessly near the troopers and their cruisers.

He faces several charges including aggravated assault on a protected official.

Amy Tallman, 48, was also issued a citation for impeding an officer. She’ll be in court in August.
