The suit filed Wednesday in Vermont Superior Court in Montpelier says Riggen stopped Bombard’s vehicle in St. Albans on Feb. 9, 2018, because he believed Bombard had shown him the middle finger. Bombard denied the allegation.
Once the initial stop was concluded, Bombard says he cursed and displayed the middle finger.
Bombard was stopped again and arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct. His car was towed. The charge was eventually dismissed.
