Pownal Man Arrested in Wastewater Facility Altercation

Staff Reports
POWNAL, Vt. — A local man was arrested Monday morning after an altercation at the wastewater treatment plant on Dean Road. 
 
Eric Harris, 34, of Pownal is charged with simple assault, aggravated disorderly conduct and unlawful mischief.  
 
According to a release by State Trooper Shawn Sommers, troopers from the Shaftsbury barracks responded to the plant at about 9:58 a.m. on Monday for a report of an "out of control" man. Harris is alleged to have struck an employee of the treatment facility causing pain. Further investigation, according to the report, revealed that Harris had allegedly caused damage to a fence at the main entrance to the facility. 
 
The release did not state what may have caused the altercation or the name of the alleged victim.  
 
Harris was taken to the barracks for processing and was later released on conditions to appear in Vermont Superior Court's Criminal Division in Bennington on April 29.
