UVM Police Investigate Threatening Language on Campus

Burlington, Vt. - University Of Vermont Police say a UVM community member overheard a phone conversation in which a person allegedly used racist and threatening language.

Authorities say after an investigation and a consultation with Chittenden County State’s Attorney, Wesley Richter, 20, a Continuing Education student was cited to appear in court on disorderly conduct.    

A media release from UVM Police states that Richter was charged under Vermont Statutes Annotated, Title 13, section 1026 (a) (1).

“A person is guilty of disorderly conduct if he or she, with intent to cause public inconvenience or annoyance, or recklessly creates a risk thereof: engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous, or threatening behavior.”

UVM Police say there is not threat to the public’s safety and the case is now in the hands of the Chittenden County State’s Attorney.
