Nashua man arrested on gun charge


PETER JOHNSON 

NASHUA – Police say they arrested a city man after investigating a disturbance outside a Temple Street bar early Saturday morning and finding him with a semi-automatic handgun.

The incident happened about 1:30 a.m. Saturday outside the Old Amsterdam Bar, 8 Temple St.

While breaking up a group having a shoving match, an officer saw a man identified as Peter Johnson, 37, of 117 Northwood Drive, walk away, carrying a dark object in his right hand.

Officers attempted to stop Johnson, but he quickly jumped into the back seat of a vehicle belonging to his girlfriend.

Police “made contact” with Johnson and located a semi-automatic handgun, according to a news release.

Johnson is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.
