Police say Manchester man zapped with stun gun after fight with officer
MANCHESTER – An officer zapped a man with a stun gun after struggling to arrest him, and then police arrested a woman who they say began shouting obscenities at them as they waited for the police transport van.
The incident began about 10:25 p.m. Monday when Officer Matt Barter saw some “suspicious activity” involving a pedestrian and a passing vehicle near Merrimack and Union streets, according to a police news release.
Barter tried to the stop the pedestrian, but the man ran off despite the officer warning him to stop.
Barter caught up to him, however, as he entered the doorway to 292 Lake Ave.
As Barter was arresting him, the man, identified by police as Jeremy McCabe, 26, of 239 Lake Ave., “struggled violently” with Barter who eventually used his Taser on him.
McCabe was wanted on an arrest warrant for an unrelated shoplifting charge, police said. He was charged with two counts each of resisting arrest and assault on a police officer in Monday's incident.
A group of people had gathered as police were arresting McCabe. Police said as they waited for the transport van to take McCabe to the station, onlooker Nancy Stimans, 54, of 175 Chestnut St., starting shouting obscenities at them.
They told her to quiet down, but when police say she continued swearing at them, they arrested her on a disorderly conduct charge.
