Over the weekend, a man identified as Sean Irish was arrested twice following police reports regarding his odd behavior. Irish, whose last known address was in Salem, Massachusetts, was taken into custody by New Hampshire police on both Friday and Saturday.
The first incident occurred in the parking lot at the Mall at Rockingham Park, at the intersection of South Broadway and Rockingham Park Boulevard. A witness called Salem Police describing a disoriented man who appeared to be looking into vehicles in the area.
After speaking with Irish, Salem Fire and Rescue was called to the scene to evaluate his condition. Emergency responders found prescription pills on his person and speculated that he could have taken a large dose, causing his symptoms.
However, it did not appear that Irish received medical treatment. Instead, he was taken into custody. Irish apparently verbally protested the arrest with officers to no avail. He was released a short time later on $1,000 cash bail.
Although it was unclear when the second arrest occurred, police said that the next day, they were called to the LaQuinta Inn and Suites because a man would neither pay nor leave the premises. When they arrived, Irish was found on scene.
On that occasion, he allegedly had marijuana on his person, so he was arrested a second time. Irish has been charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled drug, possession of marijuana, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.
