Little bit of a delay in starting the debate as Liberty Union candidate Peter Diamondstone sat on one of the three stools reserved for the debaters.
He accused the nonprofit Vermont Natural Resources Council of violating his civil rights by choosing the other parties over his.
"I'm going to ask you to please stand up," a state trooper told Diamondstone.
"I'm not going to get off the stage," he responded.
Finally, the trooper physically removed Diamondstone. "Am I being arrested?" he called as he was led out of the pavilion.
VNRC spokesman Jake Brown said Diamondstone wasn't invited because the other three parties were seen as more "in the political game in Vermont."
