Sheriff: Halfmoon man cut power to ex’s home, violated order of protection


A Halfmoon man was arrested early Sunday morning, accused of cutting power to his ex-wife’s home and damaging her car, the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office said.

He also violated an order of protection in the process, officials said.

Gyoom A. Vyent, 45, of Firehouse Road, was charged Sunday with first-degree criminal contempt, third-degree criminal mischief, both felonies, and second-degree criminal tampering, a misdemeanor.

The incident happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday, officials said. Deputies responded to a 1:19 a.m. call for someone at a residence on Firehouse Road. An investigation into the complaint led to Vyent’s arrest.

Vyent is accused of turning off the power at his ex-wife’s residence, keying her motor vehicle, and of violating the order of protection in doing so.

Vyent was processed and released released at the direction of Clifton Park Justice James Hughes. Vyent is to return to court later.
