BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont state trooper being investigated on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol has been cited to appear in court on the DUI charge next month.

The state prosecutor said Tuesday that Eric Rademacher of the Rutland barracks is scheduled to be arraigned on April 13 for events that occurred on March 2. No other details about the incident have been released.

The state says Rademacher, of Mendon, was placed on paid leave earlier this month.

Rademacher’s lawyer David Sleigh says his client will plead not guilty. Sleigh says he’s pretty confident that Rademacher “will be exonerated of the criminal charges.”
