New Hampshire man arrested amid grocery store protests

Some New Hampshire residents may think they'll never need a criminal defense attorney. Certainly, the risk of criminal charges are much lower if you live a law-abiding life, but that doesn't mean you'll never be accused of something you didn't do. It's also possible for otherwise law-abiding citizens to get into trouble in a moment of temper or other emotion, which might require a criminal defense if charges are involved.

One grocery store worker is being charged with reckless driving after he reportedly became upset at events going on at a local Market Basket. The events leading up to his arrest took place at the same time protesters are rallying daily at the chain's locations.

According to reports, protesters are calling for former chief executive officer Arthur T. Demoulas to receive his job back. The man was fired the grocery chains board in June. According to reports, the board was controlled by the man's cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas.

Reports are that the arrest of the Market Basket employee occurred at a store in Epping, New Hampshire. The man allegedly sped through the parking lot in a reckless fashion. Police were there looking into complaints about people on site videotaping Market Basket workers.

Police say they believe the man was upset because of the videotaping. The videos were being taken by people who said they were monitors hired by the grocery chain's corporate office. Authorities say no one was hurt in the incident. The man's arrest is the first associated with the protests.

It may seem like a little incident -- the man was upset and drove angrily through the parking lot. Even so, he faces criminal charges that could result in various consequences, making a criminal defense essential to protect his future.
