Darrell Boudro

A Hartford, Vermont man is facing several charges after police received several complaints of erratic driving Sunday.

Investigators allege 48-year-old Darrell Boudro was driving under the influence of drugs with a 9-year-old child in the car with him.

Boudro is being charged with DUI-drugs, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless endangerment, cruelty to a child, and grossly negligent operation.

Police say they received multiple complaints that Boudro was driving all over the road and striking signs on Route 131 in Weathersfield before the vehicle got on Interstate-91 at exit 8.

Weathersfield police eventually located Boudro's vehicle on I-91 northbound at mile marker 62 in Hartland where the car became disabled.

No one was injured in this incident.

It's not immediately clear if the child is related to Boudro, or where the child was taken after Boudro's arrest.

Boudro is expected to appear in Vermont Superior Court Windsor Criminal Division on May 23 at 12:30. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

No other information was immediately available.
