    WEST RUTLAND ó A West Rutland man will be in court on Monday to answer to charge of aggravated domestic assault stemming from an incident early Thursday morning.

    Matthew Shook, 34, was arrested around 1:40 a.m. Thursday after police responded to a domestic disturbance at Jenís Motel on Route 4A in West Rutland.

    Police said an initial investigation showed that Shook was involved in a verbal and physical altercation with a woman, who suffered some injuries as a result.

    Shook was also found to be in violation of court-ordered conditions of release after a preliminary breath test showed he had been drinking, police said.

    Shook was arrested and held at the Rutland jail on $5,000 bail.

    He faces a felony charge of aggravated domestic assault and a misdemeanor charge of violating conditions of release.
