BERLIN — A Middlesex man who was allegedly clocked driving 110 mph on Interstate 89 late Sunday night is facing two criminal charges stemming from the incident.
State police say Gordon Hickory, 26, was taken into custody and processed for driving under the influence shortly after they pulled over the northbound vehicle he was driving near Exit 7 in Berlin.
According to police, Hickory was pulled over shortly before 10:30 p.m., moments after they allegedly clocked him driving 45 mph over the posted 65 mph speed limit.
Police said they determined Hickory had been drinking and he was transported to the Middlesex barracks after he was asked to perform field sobriety exercises.
Hickory was processed for driving under the influence and later released. He is expected to be charged with drunken driving and careless and negligent operation when he is arraigned at the criminal courthouse in Barre on Nov. 21, police said.MORE IN Vermont News
