RANDOLPH, Vt. (AP) - Vermont state police say they have cited a Plainfield man for unlawful trespass in connection with a protest on the lawn of Public Service Commissioner Christopher Recchia last week.

Police say 37-year-old Henry Harris of Plainfield is due in Orange County Superior Court on July 13 on the unlawful trespass charge. He was also issued a civil complaint in the amount of $500 for allegedly leaving a replica of an oil derrick on Recchia’s lawn. About a dozen protesters on May 25 also painted orange lines on Recchia’s driveway and drove wooden stakes in the ground to secure the derrick.

Recchia told police the protesters knocked on his door at about 6:30 that morning and asked him to sign “some type of affidavit.”

No phone listing could be located for Harris.
