        Police say that Devin Dubois allegedly began driving his vehicle erratically while holding a knife and stating that he was prepared to drive off a cliff and kill them both.

    The woman, who eventually got out of the car and met with police near Main Street in West Lebanon, told officers that Dubois had grabbed her by her shoulders and would not let her out of his vehicle while he continued to drive recklessly at high speeds.

    Officers located Dubois, took him into custody, and charged him with a felony count of criminal threatening with a deadly weapon and accompanying misdemeanor domestic violence counts of simple assault and false imprisonment.

    Dubois was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail and is due to be arraigned on August 30th at Grafton County Superior Court.
