Driver charged with biting state trooper on I-93
Biting Powers could land McGurk in state prison for two to five years if he is convicted by a jury, according to court documents.
He is expected to waive arraignment on the new assault charge in Rockingham County Superior Court on Wednesday.
Powers first stopped along the Interstate 93 to assist McGurk because he was struggling to get his car started, according to prosecutors.
McGurk told police he did not have his wallet with him and went looking for documents in his vehicle, but Powers noticed that McGurk had a wallet in his back pocket, prosecutors said.
The trooper chased him down and tackled him, and had used his Taser and pepper sprayed as the two struggled along the roadside.
State troopers and Salem police found Powers along the interstate a short time later. They tracked McGurk's footprints through the snow leading them to a home on Brady Avenue in Salem where a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am had just been stolen, prosecutors said. McGurk was found two days later staying at a motel in Massachusetts just a short distance from where the car was abandoned in a Marshall's store parking lot, prosecutors said.
