On December 26, 2017 at approximately 1:00AM, Officer Winslow of the Lebanon Police Department observed man walking away from a car that appeared to have just crashed into a snow bank on Plainfield Road. The male subject was later identified as Brodie Jarrett, age 22, of White River JCT, Vermont. As Officer Winslow attempted to detain Jarrett to investigate the accident, Jarrett assaulted Officer Winslow and attempted to flee. Officer Winslow caught up to Jarrett where a struggle ensued and other officers arrived on scene to assist.
Officers deployed a Taser in an attempt to subdue Jarrett but it was ineffective and he continued to resist and assault the officers while fleeing on foot again. Officers gave chase and caught Jarrett down the road where they were able to take him into custody. Jarrett will be charged with Class A Misdemeanor counts of Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated, Conduct After an Accident, Resisting Arrest or Detention and Simple Assault on a Police Officer. The enhanced DWI charge is the result of Jarrett’s BAC being more than twice the legal limit.
Jarrett refused the services of a Bail Commissioner and was held at the Grafton County House of Corrections pending an arraignment in the Lebanon District Division, New Hampshire Second Circuit Court on December 26, 2017.
