Nashua man charged in tow-truck incident


NASHUA - A city man is under arrest after police said he tried to take back his car from a tow truck and assaulted the driver.

Cody Briand, the owner North Country Towing, placed a Niissan Pathfinder, parked in a private lot on Hartford Lane, on his ruck Sunday about 12:30 a.m. because it did not have a parking permit, police said.

The owner of the SUV, identified by police as Mark Scheerhoorn, 55, of 5 Hartford Lane, Apt. F, got into the Pathfinder and attempted to drive it off the truck.

Police said the tow cable stopped him from removing the SUV and from hitting Briand's assistant.

Scheerhoorn is accused of assaulting the assistant and threatening another employee.

He is charged with reckless conduct, a class B felony; simple assault, criminal threatening and resisting arrest, all class A misdemeanors.

Scheerhoorn is being held on $5,000 cash/surety bail, pending arraignment Monday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
