November 24, 2020 GMT

PLAINFIELD, Vt. (AP) — An 18-year-old from Barre is facing charges after allegedly running over a deer decoy in Plainfield, the Department of Fish and Wildlife said.

Game wardens did not release the name or gender of the teenager involved in the Nov. 12 incident.

Wardens had set up deer decoy operation. A vehicle turned into the field where the decoys were set up and ran over one of the decoys just before 1 a.m.

Wardens who were monitoring the decoys attempted to stop the fleeing vehicle, which crossed a private driveway and hit a ditch before accelerating away at speeds exceeding 70 miles per hour.

Two wardens briefly pursued the vehicle, but then stopped.

Two days later, after receiving a tip, the wardens located the vehicle and the teenager who admitted to the actions.

The individual is due to appear in family court at a later date.
