Manchester Man’s Beer in Public Escalates, Leads To Flying Handcuffs & Arrest
"It's 5 O' clock somewhere," and this week in Manchester, New Hampshire, it ended up with a man face first in an alley, after becoming 'belligerent' to police officers.
According to the Union Leader, a Manchester man was eventually arrested after a series of incidents, which started with him wanting to drink a beer. Fifty Six year old Dennis Delisle was one of two men who left Bunny’s Market with beer shortly after 5 on Monday. The two men retired to an alley, and started to drink the beer. Watching this unfold was Community Policing Officer Anna Marie Martin on bike patrol. She approached the men, and asked for identification. According to a police report, “Delisle got up and tried to walk past the officer, and when she tried to hold him back he became increasingly hostile.” "Delisle began to posture as though he was about to fight.”
After another officer arrived, Delisle allegedly tried to hit one of the officers, and a struggle ensued, according to the Union Leader. “When officers brought him to the ground, he ended up pushing so hard the handcuffs went flying into the alleyway.”
After being taken to police headquarters, he allegedly tried to punch another officer during fingerprinting. While continuing to resist, four officers were deployed, and a taser was used.
Delisle is charged with two counts of resisting arrest, criminal threatening, and obstructing government administration.
