New Hampshire Man Arrested Twice In 24 Hours Back On The Streets
Most people would consider being arrested once a wake up call. Well, one Boscawen, New Hampshire man found himself in hand cuffs not one, but twice, in a 24 hour period.
According to the Union Leader, Benjamin Benoit, 33, is scheduled to appear in Merrimack County Superior Court next month to face charges including driving while intoxicated, and drug possession. These stem from arrests Thursday afternoon and Friday morning last week, police said in a release.
Bow police arrested Benoit and charged him with driving under the influence as well as possession of controlled drugs after responding to a call of someone nodding off inside a car at a gas station. Less than 24 hours later, the leader stated Concord police found Benoit sleeping in a tan Nissan Altima that police learned was stolen in Pembroke, after recieving a call similar to the previous one.
The Union Leader reported the owner of the car told police he didn't know Benoit, who was charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of stolen property and breaching bail conditions.
He was released yet again on bail, and is scheduled for another court appearance on July 12, one week after the first.
