Vermont State Police have arrested a woman accused of driving while under the influence of drugs and kicking a trooper during her arrest.

Police responded to 4826 Memorial Drive in St. Johnsbury Sunday night for a report of a suspicious car parked on a lawn. 

Prior to arrival, police received a report of a driver in the area driving erratically.

Officers determined the driver in the vehicle, 25-year-old Ceara Concannon, of Burke, was under the influence of narcotics. As she was being arrested, police say she attempted to kick out the windshield of a state police cruiser and kicked a state trooper in the chest.

Officers seized five empty suspected heroin baggies, two pipes used to smoke crack cocaine and hypodermic needles.

She was released on a citation to appear in court on December 19.

It’s not clear if she has an attorney.
