PLYMOUTH — A 35-year-old man was arrested following an incident in Plymouth on Thursday.

Authorities say they were notified of a reckless driver on Tenney Mountain Highway headed east towards I-93 from the area of Dunkin Donuts at around 6:30 p.m.

Police say they located the vehicle, which had crashed into the guardrails near the on-ramp to Tenney Mountain Highway from Route 3.

The vehicle was a 2018 GMC pick-up truck with a male driver and a juvenile passenger in the back seat of the truck.

Police say the first on scene officer was able to remove the juvenile from the vehicle to a safe location as the male driver was being uncooperative and confrontational.

Following an investigation, police allege that the driver had struck another vehicle further down the road and appeared to be under the influence.

Police say the driver refused to comply with officers and continued to be aggressive, demanding that the police shoot him.

Additional officers arrived on the scene and they were able to deescalate the situation and take the driver into custody after deploying a taser.

The driver was arrested and charged with felony reckless conduct x2, aggravated DWI, endangering the welfare of a child, resisting arrest, simple assault on a police officer, and conduct after an accident.

After being medically cleared, he was transported to the Grafton County Jail.

Police have not identified the suspect at this time.
