Vermont State Troopers dashcam video shows man brandishing a digger bucket to stop his son’s arrest: police

HARDWICK, Vermont (WPVI) — A Vermont man faces charges after police say he tried to attack them with heavy machinery when soldiers arrested his son.

The incident was captured on police dashcam video.

It happened last Tuesday in Hardwick when state police arrested 24-year-old Brandon Tallman for burglary and assault, stemming from an earlier incident, affiliate WCAX-TV reports.

Police say the man’s parents were at the house trying to prevent the arrest.

Video shows the suspect’s mother, Amy Tallman, 48, getting into a scuffle with Troopers Skylar Velazquez and Gabe Schrauf.

At that point, police said the man’s father, Wayne Tallman, 52, got into the cab of a backhoe that was parked in the driveway.

As officers focus on Brandon Tallman and his mother on the ground, video shows the man’s father lowering the backhoe’s bucket and pointing it at police.

“Wayne proceeded to operate a backhoe and recklessly maneuver the bucket close to the Troopers and their cruisers to prevent them from apprehending the suspect,” the police report said.

The video shows Trooper Schauf pointing his gun at the man but not firing.

All three family members were taken into custody.

Wayne Tallman now faces charges of reckless endangerment and assault by a protected officer.

Amy Tallman was charged with obstructing an officer.
