Rabbi Arrested at Gunpoint Cleared of Charges

From Arutz Sheva:

A Vermont judge cleared Rabbi Berl Fink of all charges Wednesday relating to his controversial arrest by Vermont State Troopers in August that resulted in Fink being arrested at gunpoint.

Fink had led Vermont State Trooper Justin Thompson on a four-mile police chase in August when he failed to pull over for driving 20 miles over the speed limit. Fink said that he did not realize he was being pulled over and could not find a place to do so.

When Fink finally stopped, Thompson ordered him at gunpoint to leave the car with his hands up and handcuffed Fink along with his wife and brother. Thompson told Rabbi Fink that “if you don’t do exactly what I say, you’re going to get tased” and yelled at another officer to “check them for weapons”.

Fink was later charged with refusing a police order.
