The Vermont Attorney General’s office says a former Vermont state trooper has been cited for assault.

Eric Howley of Wilmington will be arraigned on two counts of simple assault on June 12.

Howley resigned from the Brattleboro barracks on Tuesday after being put on paid administrative leave since April following a complaint about his conduct while he was on duty.

The attorney general’s office did not provide any details about the alleged assault on Thursday.

Howley has been a state trooper based in Brattleboro for 7 ½ years.

He was part of a $135,000 out-of-court settlement in 2009 involving an excessive-force complaint.
