Felony Arrest after Physical Altercation with
New Hampshire Troopers
On November 26, 2020, at approximately 5:51 AM Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks in Bedford were dispatched to multiple reports of a vehicle parked in the middle of the highway with no lights on along Interstate 93 South in the area of Exit #9S in the town of Hooksett.
Upon arrival, Troopers located a Black Jeep Liberty stopped in the middle of the roadway with a male subject passed out and slumped over in the driver’s seat with the vehicle still running. Troopers made multiple attempts to wake-up the driver but were unsuccessful. Medical personnel were requested by Troopers as they were able to gain access to the vehicle. In doing so, the male subject woke-up and refused to comply with the Troopers’ requests.
Police say that a struggle ensued as the Troopers attempted to take the man into custody. During this altercation, the subject made a brief attempt to drive away from the scene and momentarily dragged two Troopers with him before he was removed from the vehicle, tased, and arrested.
