RO Schmidl responded to a report of a Collision. It was reported a vehicle crashed into the walls of the Pine Glades Tunnel and was headed north into town. She quickly found the vehicle and attempted to stop it. The vehicle would not stop. What followed was a slow-speed pursuit that ended when Officer O’Donnell blocked the way to prevent the vehicle from entering the area of the square. When they contacted the elderly driver, they found him to have a suspended license and advanced dementia.
RO Schmidl decided arresting the 82-year-old Montana man wasn’t the right solution but had him taken to the hospital to be evaluated, though she did write him some citations for the suspended license and leaving the scene of an accident.
