Ryea was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license, attempting to elude, negligent operation, and cruelty to a child under 10. He also had an outstanding warrant out of Windsor County for driving with a suspended license.
Ryea is being held at the Southern State Correctional Facility for lack of $1,000 bail on the warrant and $5,000 bail for the new charges. He was cited to appear in Rutland Superior Court on July 17.MORE IN This Just InThe Associated Press Full Story
