Vermont State Police Issue Assault Citation After VTrans Worker Is Hit With A Pickle

Just before 6 P.M. on Monday, June 1st, Vermont State Police from the Shaftsbury barracks were dispatched due to a report of an assault near the Vermont/Massachusettes state line. 

An employee of the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) was struck by an object that was thrown from the window of a passing car, causing the employee some pain. It was later determined that the object was a large pickle.

The officers that responded were provided with a description of the vehicle and suspect involved from the VTrans supervisor on scene, which later helped with locating and identifying the suspect, Christoph Herrmannsdoerfer, 34, of Williamstown, MA. This is according to a press release from the Vermont State Police.

Herrmannsdoefer was traveling south on U.S. Route 7 when the incident occurred. He was issued a citation to appear before the Bennington County Superior Court - Criminal Division on July 7th to answer to the charge of simple assault. 

Vermont State Troopers were assisted by local officers of the Williamstown, MA Police Dept.
