    NH Man Charged with Resisting Arrest, Drug Possession

    A New Hampshire man is facing multiple charges after an altercation with an officer spilled into the middle of the road on Thursday.

    Detective Captain Sean Leighton attempted to stop Scott Gagne, 29, near 160 Valley St. in Manchester, New Hampshire on a drug court warrant. However, Gagne walked away from Leighton and into traffic on Valley Street.

    After Leighton attempted to grab Gagne's arm, Gagne allegedly clenched his fists and continued to resist Leighton. Eventually, the struggle continued on the ground, where Leighton and Gagne were blocking part of Valley Street.

    Officer Emmet Macken arrived to assist Leighton and ultimately Gagne was taken into custody.
