Man arrested for DUI after illegally passing cop

A Sutton man was arrested Sunday night after he illegally passed an unmarked State Police cruiser in his gold Chevy S10 pickup, then sped up and crashed, according to police.

Dale Stone, 60, was driving on U.S. Route 5 in Sutton, and when the police cruiser tried to stop him after his illegal pass, he increased his speed, veered off the north side of the road and hit several mailboxes.

Stone over-corrected back across the road and hit a flag pole, tractor, and yard furniture before coming to a rest in the yard of 495 Route 5. He was cited on suspicion of driving under the influence and released, uninjured. Stone was wearing his seatbelt.
