Robert Harris
New Hampshire State Police

A man wearing a T-shirt reading "Periodic Drinker" was arrested and charged with a variety of crimes after allegedly driving erratically and crashing his vehicle in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

Robert Harris, 26, of St. Johnsbury, Vermont, was charged with DWI, conduct after an accident, reckless driving and resisting arrest for fighting with a trooper during the booking process.

New Hampshire State Police took several reports of a vehicle operating erratically on Interstate 93 northbound between Concord and New Hampton around 4 p.m.. It was reported that the vehicle was weaving lane to lane, tailgating and passing in the breakdown lane.

A short time later, a trooper spotted the vehicle traveling on I-93 northbound in Holderness and as the vehicle passed, she noted that it was speeding and continuing to operate erratically. She was able to catch up to the vehicle and eventually stopped it in Campton. The trooper learned the vehicle had struck two other vehicles between Concord and Plymouth, causing heavy damage, and left the scene of both collisions.

In his booking photo, Harris is wearing a shirt that reads, "Periodic Drinker."
