Wanted Sharon man arrested during traffic stop

ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (WCAX) Assault weapons were drawn during a very public arrest in the middle of the street in Essex Tuesday.

In video sent to us by a viewer, you can see Essex Police shout at someone to get on their knees by the Five Corners. Officers then put handcuffs on them.

One of the investigators told Channel 3 that person was wanted as a fugitive for an out-of-state warrant.

Officers pulled over the car with three people inside.

Everyone cooperated as officers arrested one person and no one was hurt.

The U.S. Marshals Service on Wednesday identified Hunter Isaiah Dwyer, 25, of Sharon, as the man taken into custody. They say he had active warrants in Vermont and Colorado and that he has a long rap sheet including Assault and Robbery, Aggravated Sex Assault, Burglary, Violation of Probation and various alcohol and driving related offenses.

He was expected to appear in court Wednesday.
