MANCHESTER — A city police officer was arrested Tuesday on multiple counts of domestic violence following a months-long investigation by the New Hampshire State Police.

The investigation began on Oct. 18 when the Manchester Police Department requested the State Police to take over the case due to a conflict of interest.

The allegations involved Michael MacNeilly, 28, a sworn member of the Manchester Police Department, who was accused of assault.

The Investigative Services Bureau of the State Police conducted the investigation, resulting in several warrants for MacNeilly’s arrest.

On April 23, MacNeilly turned himself in to authorities and was charged with six counts of simple assault, one count of obstructing the report of a crime/injury, and one count of criminal mischief.

All charges filed against him are misdemeanors.

After processing, MacNeilly was released on personal recognizance bail.

He is expected to appear in the 9th Circuit Court in Manchester.
