NORTHFIELD — N.H. State Police arrested two people Sunday after a road rage incident on Zion Hill at 3:15 p.m., in which police suspect a weapon was brandished.
Sgt. James McIntire of Northfield said it appears a car containing at least three people passed a different vehicle on the right and one of the passengers brandished what the driver described as a handgun. The driver of the passed car was able to get a plate number and other identifying information about the occupants.
About an hour later, McIntire said a state trooper spotted the car in question on Park Street and stopped it, arresting the two occupants for offenses not related to the road rage.
Robert Chestnut of Tilton was charged with operating without a valid license, possession of a controlled drug and transporting a controlled drug in a vehicle. Kristina Blake of Tilton was arrested on an electronic bench warrant and was additionally charged with allowing an improper person to operate.
McIntire said Northfield Police learned a third person was in the car during the alleged road rage incident and obtained a warrant to search 397 West Main St. for a handgun.
McIntire said they recovered a BB gun. He said drugs were also found and Tilton Police requested an addendum to Northfield's warrant to search for them. Additional charges are expected.
Franklin Police are also interested in the case, said McIntire, because of reports that someone shot out some windows of cars with a BB gun earlier that day.
In anyone has any additional information they are asked to call the Northfield Police at 286-8982 or the Franklin Police at 934-2535.
