Man accused of DUI at historic AA site


Vermont State Police said a man is facing a drunken driving charge after driving onto the lawn of a historic home once owned by the cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Police said Donald Blood III, 55, of Marlborough, Mass., was ordered to appear in court in Bennington on Jan. 14. Police say Blood thought he was driving into a parking lot, but it was actually the lawn of the Wilson House, built in 1852 in Dorset, the birthplace of AA cofounder Bill Wilson. The Wilson House’s website describes it as a ‘‘place of sanctuary where people can come to give thanks to God for their new lives.’’ It still hosts several AA meetings each week.
