AG declines to pursue case against Randolph's police chief

Chief Daniel Brunelle/File

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) The Vermont Attorney General's office will not pursue a domestic violence case against Randolph's police chief.

Daniel Brunelle was charged with two counts of domestic assault for allegedly shoving his wife during fights. Former Washington County State's Attorney Scott Williams dismissed the case prior to his resignation on medical grounds. The Vermont Department of State's Attorneys and Sheriffs then asked the AG to review Williams' decision.

VT Digger reports that Assistant Attorney General Bram Kranichfeld confirmed Monday that his office would not be bringing charges against Brunelle.

Current Washington County State's Attorney Rory Thibeault said that he plans to conduct his own review of the case.
