MERRIMACK — A Merrimack man accused of throwing a rock at another vehicle during a road-rage incident was arrested on an outstanding warrant during a traffic stop, police said Monday.
Kyle Trask, 20, was driving a moped Sunday around 6 p.m. when he was pulled over for an undisclosed motor vehicle violation, police said in a release Monday.
Police ran Trask’s name and placed him in custody when they found he was wanted on a warrant charging him with conspiracy to commit criminal mischief, police said.
The warrant was issued after police investigated a road-rage incident on April 11, when a driver showed up at police headquarters with a damaged windshield. The driver told police another vehicle had been following for a significant period of time and an occupant of the other vehicle threw a rock at the windshield, causing it to crack.
Investigators determined Trask threw the rock and issued a warrant for his arrest, police said.
Trask was arrested without incident and transported to the Merrimack Police Department and charged, police said.
He was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on July 25 in 9th Circuit District Court of Merrimack.
