Who is called when there is a disturbance at a New Hampshire police station? Apparently the police are called.
A recent article on the arrest of a 59-year-old New Hampshire man said he was "swearing and yelling as well as banging on the reception window" of the Concord police station at four in the morning. "Officers were called to police headquarters," a local news report states, and soon found the man nearby. He was arrested and charged with vandalism and resisting arrest.
In other news, a 38-year-old New Hampshire woman was arrested after she and her boyfriend went to a bar, had some drinks and were asked to leave because she was reportedly "too intoxicated to stand up."
The couple then went to her apartment. She reportedly wanted to drive somewhere else, but her boyfriend hid her car keys from her. She became angry and allegedly hit him, scratched him and bit him.
When police were called, the pair told officers differing accounts, but she was arrested because her version of events was reportedly inconsistent with bite marks on her boyfriend.
The news report also described the arrest of a Manchester man, 46, in Hooksett, on a charge of theft by deception and a charge of writing bad checks. Both charges are felonies.
Lastly, a Loudon woman, 52, was recently arrested on a pair of charges of driving while intoxicated. The pick-up truck she was driving apparently hit a patch of ice and slid into a stone wall.
When officers arrived on the scene, they said they noticed that the woman smelled of liquor. She reportedly said she had consumed two beers an hour before driving.
After performing sobriety tests, she was arrested and charged with DWI.
Obviously, a drunken driving charge can mean jail time, large fines, loss of a driver's license, a spike in auto insurance and more. An experienced criminal defense attorney can examine the evidence and the arrest procedure and help minimize potential penalties.
