Woman suing Nashua police, citing excessive force during arrest 3 years ago
Pamela Reynolds, 47, of Nashua, is also suing a city police detective and patrolman, according to documents filed at the Hillsborough County Superior Court in Nashua. Reynolds was taken into custody July 1, 2011, during an incident at Railroad Square. Although she was originally charged with a felony count of falsifying physical evidence and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest, the felony charge was not prosecuted and Reynolds was eventually acquitted of the misdemeanor offense during a trial. Reynolds’ attorney, Steven Maynard, said in court documents that police sprayed Reynolds with pepper spray, physically threw her to the ground and subsequently caused physical injury and medical expenses.
According to a prosecutor’s synopsis of Reynolds’ arrest, Detective Daniel Archambault arrived at Railroad Square on July 1, 2011, to make contact with a disorderly male, identified as Michael Gannon, who was holding a small video recorder and announced to police that they were being recorded.
“Detective Archambault can testify that he made contact with Reynolds and told her that he would be taking the recording device, as it is now evidence of a crime. He observed Reynolds place the recording device into her jeans pocket and begin to walk away,” according to the synopsis, adding Reynolds later took the recorder from her pocket and threw it into some bushes in an alleged attempt to conceal the item from police.
The city’s legal counsel, Brian Cullen, is on vacation and unavailable for comment.
