    A New Hampshire man was arrested Saturday on charges of aggravated sexual assault.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Each Class A felony is punishable by up to 15 years in state prison, while each Class B felony is punishable by up to seven.

    Callahan was held on $50,000 cash bail and was scheduled to be arraigned at the Hillsborough County Superior Court South on Monday. It is unclear if he has an attorney.

    Anyone with more information about this incident is asked to call the Crime Line at 603-589-1665.
