    New Hampshire Man Arrested After Being Shot by Police

    A New Hampshire man who was shot by Nashua police last week was arrested on a charge related to the incident.

    Justin Contreras was released on $500 cash bail after being charged with one count of criminal threatening.
    Police said officers responded to a home on the second floor of 106 Ledge St. on July 26 for a report of a suicidal subject.
    Arriving officers found Contreras, who was allegedly armed with a firearm and pointed it at one of the officers. Contreras was then shot by the officer and was treated at a local hospital before being transferred for Massachusetts General Hospital.
    After an investigation, officers obtained an arrest warrant for Contreras. He was arrested during a motor vehicle stop on Monday without incident, according to police.
    He's due for arraignment at Hillsborough County Superior Court on July 12. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
