Exercise Your Civil Rights, Go to Jail (Vermont Edition)

The American Civil Liberties Union has brought a lawsuit against Vermont State Police Trooper Lewis Hatch who they claim illegally detained a man, towed his car and then charged him a tow fee even after they found no crime was committed.
While he was never charged with a crime, he was billed $150 for tow fees. When Zullo questioned the charge, Hatch blamed the charge on Zullo for exercising his rights.
