Hollis police say stun gun needed on ‘unruly’ man
HOLLIS — A local resident and a police officer were both injured in an incident Monday night on Flint Pond Drive where police were sent for a report of an injured woman.
Officers, in responding to the 9:55 p.m. call, could not substantiate the report. They checked on the people inside and spoke to the homeowner, who told them her son, John A. Cook, 47, of Flint Pond Drive, had been drinking and was becoming unruly.
At her request, officers tried to escort him from the property, but they said he became uncooperative and refused to leave.
When police tried to arrest him, Cook allegedly resisted and ran. Officers zapped him with a stun gun to bring him under control. He was subsequently arrested on charges of criminal trespass, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
Police said he is charged with disorderly conduct for using profane language while yelling and screaming in the street, and disturbing residents in neighboring homes.
Both Cook and an officer sustained minor injuries in the incident, police said. They were treated at a local hospital and released.
Cook was unable to post $1,000 cash/surety bail and was to be arraigned Tuesday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
