    New Hampshire State Police have arrested a man accused of pushing an officer during a traffic stop and having drugs in his vehicle.

    On Monday at 4:30 p.m., a state trooper stopped to help a disabled vehicle on I-93 south in Derry.

    The vehicle was operated by David Tanner, 22, of Franconia, who the officer suspected may have had a large quantity of drugs in his vehicle.

    During investigation, police say Tanner pushed the officer into the travel lane of the highway and engaged in a struggle with the officer.

    Two people stopped to assist the officer, who was able to arrest Tanner.

    A search warrant was issued for the vehicle and police found marijuana inside.

    Tanner is facing drug and assault charges and is due in the 10th Circuit District Court June 12.
