Manchester man charged with assaulting three Weare officers

WEARE — A Manchester man, high on methamphetamine, assaulted three Weare police officers Sunday afternoon as they were trying to arrest him, according to authorities.

William Berry, 24, of 411A Kennard St., is being held on $11,000 cash bail in the Valley Street jail in Manchester on charges of loitering, prowling, possessing drugs and three counts of simple assault.

Police said they were called about 4:30 p.m. Sunday to Collins Landing condominium complex for a report of a man searching through parked vehicles and knocking on residents’ front doors.

Officers located the man, identified as Berry, in the area of Reservoir Road and, after investigation, decided to arrest him for loitering, prowling and drug possession.
Police said Berry admitted to using methamphetamine just before he became combative and kicked one officer in the chest, head-butted a second and spat on a third.

Eventually, he was subdued and transported to the jail without further incident.
