Police arrest Auburn man after incident at Hooksett Applebee's

HOOKSETT - An Auburn man is under arrest on offenses related to a disruption he caused Tuesday night inside Applebee's on Hooksett Road, police said.

Ian Holland, 26, was being belligerent and disruptive to staff and customers, Applebee's employees told police.

He allegedly followed the manager around the building from table to table and then into the kitchen. He was asked several times to leave, but he refused, police said.

He allegedly assaulted an employee as he was being escorted out of the restaurant. Police said Holland refused to cooperate and did not understand that he was not permitted back into the restaurant.

He was arrested for criminal trespass, simple assault and resisting arrest.

At the station, police said he became uncooperative during the booking process and when being transported to the Merrimack County jail in Boscawen, he became combative.

He allegedly kicked Officer Justin Sargent in the face when Sargent tried to secure him in the back seat of the cruiser.

Holland is being held at the county jail pending a 1 p.m. video arraignment Wednesday at 6th Circuit Court, Hooksett District Division.
