§

1111. Civil violation; failure to produce identification

(a) A law

enforcement officer is authorized to detain a person if:

(1) the officer

has reasonable grounds to believe the person has committed a civil violation of

Title 7, 10, 13, 18, or 23; and

(2) the person

refuses to identify himself or herself satisfactorily to the officer when

requested by the officer.

(b) The person

may be detained under this section only until the person identifies himself or

herself satisfactorily to the officer or is properly identified. If the officer

is unable to obtain the identification information, the person shall forthwith

be brought before a judge in the Criminal Division of the Superior Court for

that purpose. A person who refuses to identify himself or herself to the Court

on request shall immediately and without service of an order on the person be

subject to civil contempt proceedings pursuant to 12 V.S.A. § 122. (Added 2013,

No. 194 (Adj. Sess.), § 12, eff. June 17, 2014.)
