HOLLIS — A Merrimack man was arrested and charged with multiple counts of assault and domestic violence after police responded to a disturbance on Wright Rd on Jan. 6.

Jeffrey Yule, 40, was taken into custody after officers were called to the scene around 8 p.m. and found a female barricaded in a bathroom, according to the Hollis Police Department.

Upon arrival, officers established probable cause that a domestic violence-related assault had occurred, with Yule identified as the primary aggressor.

He was arrested without initial incident.

However, after being handcuffed, Yule became belligerent and head-butted an officer in the face.

He then attempted to fight the officers, kicking and flailing, until he was subdued and taken to the ground.

Officers managed to gain compliance and transported him to the Hollis Police Department for processing.

Yule was released on $250 cash bail, and an arraignment has been set at the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District.

The officer assaulted by Yule was not injured but was evaluated by the Hollis Fire Department as a precaution.

Yule faces charges of domestic violence, simple assault, two additional counts of simple assault, and resisting arrest/detention.

All charges are Class A misdemeanors, which could result in up to one year of imprisonment if convicted.
