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.
