Brief standoff in Nashua leads to arrest

NASHUA -- Police arrested a 24-year-old man late Friday night following a brief standoff with local authorities.

Sgt. Keith Dillon said they received a call shortly after 11 p.m. for a disorderly man who was allegedly armed with a gun at a residence on Fields Grove.

Uniformed officers set up a perimeter around the home, using an armored vehicle to approach the building and the occupant involved, David Perez, of Nashua.

Although there were initial reports that Perez was in possession of a firearm, Dillon said he ultimately did not have a weapon.

"There was no resistance, and it was very minor," explained Dillon. No one was injured in the incident and no shots were fired, according to police.

Perez was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and criminal threatening against a police officer.
