Charles Root - Simple Assault, Unlawful Mischief, Disorderly Conduct, Assault on Law Enforcement



Vt. State Police - 1:40 am Fri Jun 14th, 2019

On 06/13/2019, at approximately 2012 hours, VT State Police from the Middlesex Barracks responded to Carroll Rd in Waitsfield, VT.

State Police were notified of a male, later identified as Charles Root, who callers say was acting erratically and had assaulted numerous people at the Big Picture movie theatre.
When Troopers arrived, they made contact with Root, who was naked. Root immediately jumped on a State Police cruiser and began to kick in the windshield. Root was ultimately taken into custody. While in custody, Root spit in a Trooper's face.

The subsequent investigation led to criminal charges, to include Simple Assault, Unlawful Mischief, Disorderly Conduct and Assault on Law Enforcement. Root was ultimately transported to the Chittenden County Correctional Center for lack of $1,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in Washington Superior Court - Criminal Division on 06/14/2019 at 1245 hours.

There were no serious injuries reported.
