Shane R. Couture - DUI-Drugs/Possession of Marijuana

Vt. State Police - 2:10 am Fri Feb 1st, 2013

On 01/31/2013 at approximately 2025 hours the Vermont State Police affected a motor vehicle stop on VT Rt. 36 near four corners in Fairfield, VT after an observation of a motor vehicle violation.

Vermont State Police conducted a consent search of the vehicle. The subsequent investigation yielded that the operator, identified as 24 year-old Shane R. Couture of Fairfield, was in possession of marijuana. It was then learned that Couture had been smoking the marijuana prior to the stop and then State Police called in a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) to further analyze the operator's impairment. The DRE concluded that Couture was impaired and under the influence of drugs while operating a motor vehicle.
Couture was arrested and brought back to the St. Albans State Police Barracks for processing and further evaluation. Couture refused blood work to be drawn. Couture was then issued a citation to appear in Franklin County District Court on 02/25/2013 at 1:00pm to answer to the charges.
