    COLCHESTER - Vermont State Police, the U.S. Border Patrol and officers from several communities were involved in stopping erratic driving by a man in truck towing a trailer on Route 2.

    Police said the driver turned off and back onto Route 2 heading east. He swerved to avoid a tire deflation device and struck a marked DMV truck in Milton before heading onto Interstate 89, where he struck two police cruisers. He was stopped at the Colchester weigh station.

    The driver, identified as 49-year-old Kenneth Perrotte of South Burlington, was arrested on driving under the influence, eluding a police officer, and other charges. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
