Man Greets Officers With Profanities and a Gun, Police Say
MERRIMACK — A welfare check ended with a man swearing and pointing a gun at police.
On Saturday, Christopher Kalloger, 35, of Merrimack, was arrested and charged with one felony B count of reckless conduct, one count of resisting detention and one count of criminal threatening.
After receiving a call from the Nashua Police Department regarding a welfare check for a Kalloger, the Merrimack Police Department visited his home.
When they arrived, a woman greeted them at the door. They explained the purpose of their visit and asked to speak to Kalloger.
Kalloger than appeared in the doorway brandishing a firearm and started to scream obscenities at the officers, police said.
The officers persuaded Kalloger to put down the firearm but he continued to shout profanities at them, police said.
After a brief struggle, he was taken into custody.
Kalloger was held on $10,000 cash only bail and was arraigned Monday in Hillsborough County Superior Court South in Nashua.
