BENNINGTON — A Woodford Road resident is facing criminal charges
after police said they believed he leaned across the front seat of a
truck and fired out the window at a deer on Nov. 24.
P. Hayes, 21, of Bennington, was arraigned in Bennington criminal
court on Monday on misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment,
using an illegal method of taking game and failure to take big game.
Hayes pleaded innocent to the charges and was released without bail.
Hayes was also charged with four counts of violating his
probation from four charges in four different cases.
2011, Hayes pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of disorderly
conduct and being a minor in possession of alcohol and no contest to
a misdemeanor count of leaving the scene of a crash which caused
property damage. In December 2011, he pleaded guilty to a
misdemeanor count of unlawful trespass.
Hayes was placed on
probation in all four of the cases.
