Wayne’s wife, Amy Tallman, was also cited for impeding an officer. 

“It could have been, ‘Sir, flip about, place your arms close to your back, you’re less than arrest for an assault,’ and they would have driven away,” Vermont State Police Captain Matt Daley told WCAX. “They really do not have a scenario at the academy in which we apply this just one.”
