Sounds to me like newton was out of control and allegedly bashed his girl, and if impaired,(alcohol eventually bites), drove drunk. To his credit, he allegedly realized his dui driving and drove back.

Since when is a MERE "swollen, disfigured, and bleeding" a misdemeanor domestic assault? I wonder If I did my wife up like that intoxicated, if I'd be charged with a misdemeanor?

Shaftsbury Barracks is well known for a fer bad apples committing assaults on its prisoners. What ever happened to a 4 year rotation so as not to get too comfortable with fellow Troopers and the natives?

The girl newton allegedly assaulted, must have been fearful for her life to dial 911 on one of Vermont's good old boys. She must be absolutely terrified now.
Lets put the alleged woman victim first.

Saltonstall's firm is known for NOT suing Troopers, so it's only appropriate for him to be newtons attorney. At most, newton will get a slap on the wrist and be reinstated, but for now, for the safety of us all, he is not armed.

i commend the detectives for not sweeping this one. There are some mighty fine Troopers out there, but its on the job criminals tarnish Vermont's finest.
