    Unusual DUI case:

    Man faces charges

    BENNINGTON — A local man is facing felony charges after a woman told police he came to her door on June 1, asked her to help him push his truck and, when she said no, laid down in her front yard.

    Gary J. Gore, 46, of Pucker Hill Road was arraigned in Bennington criminal court on two felony counts related to driving under the influence of alcohol with two previous convictions for the same charge. Gore pleaded innocent and was released without bail.

    In an affidavit, Bennington Police Officer Amanda Thomson, said she was sent to a Gore Road home on June 1 around 8:50 p.m.

    Thomson said a woman told her a man had come to her door and asked for help pushing his truck up the road. She said no, she said, and the man laid on her front lawn.

    The man, later identified as Gore, told the officer his truck had run out of gas when he was driving to his girlfriend’s home. Thomson said he claimed he was with a friend who drove the truck.

    Thomson said she could smell alcohol on Gore’s breath as they spoke.

    The affidavit said Gore’s blood alcohol content was measured at 0.175 percent around 11 p.m., more than two hours after Thomson first spoke to Gore. The legal limit for driving in Vermont is 0.08 percent.

    Gore was also ordered Monday to submit to electronic monitoring.
