HOOKSETT — A. Richard “Dick” Marple, the Republican State Representative for Hooksett, was arrested on Friday.
Marple had an active electronic bench warrant out of Concord District Court. He now faces a class B misdemeanor prohibition charge for having an invalid driver’s license.
Marple was arrested without incident at the Hooksett Public Library at 31 Mount St Mary’s Way.
Marple is serving his fourth term as a State Representative and is a member of the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs committee.
He is also the lead sponsor on more than a handful of bills this session, including one that sets the mileage reimbursement rate for legislators and prohibits deductions from compensation or mileage reimbursement of representatives.
Marple was released on $4,000 personal recognizance bail. Marple will be arraigned on June 6 at the Concord District Court.
