RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man charged with violating the conditions of his release by possessing a “deadly weapon” is arguing that his hunting bow is not a deadly weapon.

Officials say 31-year-old Kevin Chadburn pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge during a Monday court hearing in Rutland. The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2yfId0h ) he also has numerous pending charges slated for a sentencing hearing next month.

Rutland police say Chadburn acknowledged he was bow hunting, but he says a bow and arrow is not a deadly weapon. Officers disagreed and arrested him.

Chadburn’s attorney requested an exception Monday that would allow him to bow hunt. The judge asked Chadburn’s attorney to submit a motion.
