A Wheelock man faces several charges after police say he obstructed a roadway and threatened several people with a gun.

According to Vermont State Police, 46-year-old Jeremy Currier constructed a man-made barrier on Burroughs Road on Friday. Currier confronted a person who tried to remove the roadblock and threatened several people looking to continue down the road.

Police say when Currier exited his home holding a gun, they used what they call, “less lethal impact munitions” to de-escalate the situation as he refused to follow commands.
