    A Vermont man has been accused of punching a state trooper in the head and grabbing him by the throat, after grabbing two children. 

    Sixty-year-old Paul Scalzo, of Derby Line, was arrested Monday on aggravated assault charges. Police had received a complaint that Scalzo was drunk and had grabbed the children by the throat and chest. 

    The trooper eventually took Scalzo into custody. Both he and the trooper were treated at a hospital for minor injuries. An ambulance service examined the children. 

    Scalzo was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.
