This NH Man Wouldn't Talk to Officers and Now He Has a Slew of Charges, Police Say
HUDSON — A New Hampshire man was arrested after police shattered a vehicle's window to speak with him.
At 3:30 p.m. Tuesday officers investigated a disturbance on Central and Hurley streets.
The officers tried to speak with a suspect driving a van that was parked on Hurley Street.
Police said as an officer stood near the van trying to speak to the driver, the van sped off onto Central Street.
The driver of the van then stopped a few feet from the intersection with Library Street.
When officers approached the vehicle, the driver refused to open the door or roll down the window, and officers had to shatter a window on the vehicle, police said.
The officers struggled with the driver, identified as Joseph Reis, of Nashua, but then took him into custody, police said.
The officers charged Reis with obedience to a police officer (violation), obstructing government administration, reckless conduct, two counts of resisting detention, one count of resisting arrest, disobeying an officer and possession of marijuana (less than ¾ oz.).
He was scheduled to appear in Nashua district court on Wednesday.
