MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Police say a Waterbury man has been cited on accusations of disorderly conduct for trying to park on the side of Interstate 89 to attend the women’s march in Montpelier and refusing to comply with police orders.

William Minter pulled to the side of the interstate after police had closed the Montpelier exit due to traffic backup Saturday from the march that drew 15,000 to 20,000 people.

Police say they told him he couldn’t park there and walk and must seek an alternative route. Police say Minter refused to return to his vehicle and to provide his license and registration multiple times.

Authorities say the incident caused traffic to stop in the travel lane.

Minter was issued multiple traffic tickets. He didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
