NASHUA — A city man faces a pair of felonies and two misdemeanor charges after police accused him of assaulting another driver in a Sunday road-rage incident and then found drugs when they went to arrest him at his home.
Brian MacPherson, 57, of 10 Boulder Circle, is charged with simple assault and resisting arrest, both Class A misdemeanors, and criminal threatening and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, both Class B felonies, police said.
Officers determined MacPherson was the suspect in a road-rage incident Sunday afternoon while in possession of a handgun in which the victim was assaulted and threatened. Police went to MacPherson’s home at 3:07 p.m., and communicated with him for a period of time before he came out and was arrested, police said. A search uncovered the marijuana, police said.
MacPherson was released on $10,000 cash/surety bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in Hillsborough County Superior Court South on May 10.
