An Amissville man was charged with DUI, tresspassing and stalking last week after Rappahannock Lakes neighbors called the Sheriff’s Office to complain that he was trespassing and taking photos.
Bruce Lee Geisert, 53, of Rappahannock Circle, was charged with the driving under the influence by Deputy Nick White the afternoon of March 28. Police had been called to a home on Pine Street by residents who said Geisert was tresspassing after having been verbally warned, as well as taking photographs and knocking on the door.
White found him in his car a short distance away and (according to court documents) after Geisert failed several blood-alcohol-level tests, he was arrested. He was released on bail pending a hearing May 10.
Adam Foster Bellows, 21, of Culpeper, was arrested late on the night of April 2 and charged with driving under the influence. Deputy Dan Stevens had noticed Bellows’ car traveling at a high rate of speed on U.S. 522 near Flint Hill.
