Manchester police officer pleads innocent to charge he assaulted wife

MANCHESTER - Manchester police officer Adam Beland, 28, pleaded innocent Wednesday in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division, to two charges of simple assault.

Beland is accused of approaching his wife from behind and shoving her two or three times and of placing his left arm around her neck and pushing her out the door of his Country Club Drive apartment.

Beland is free on $1,000 personal recognizance bail, with conditions barring contact with the alleged victim and barring him from going to a Waterford Way address. Trial was set for April 29.

Manchester Police Chief David Mara said Beland, who has been a Manchester police officer for seven years, is suspended without pay pending resolution of the charges. Mara also said the case has been sent over to the Hillsborough County Attorney for review.
