GILFORD — A Laconia man who entered into an apartment on Woodlawn Drive Tuesday night and passed out on the living room floor has been charged with resisting arrest and simple assault.
Police said they were called to the home by a former friend of Jeffrey Goodale, 33, who found Goodale at her apartment. Once police arrived, they found him sleeping in a different apartment's living room and woke him.
Police said he was quite intoxicated and fought with police before trying to run. He was zapped with a Taser and arrested without further incident.
Goodale was evaluated by ambulance personnel from Laconia and then taken to Belknap County Corrections.
He was held overnight for protective custody and released Wednesday just after 11 a.m.
Gilford Police were assisted at the scene by Laconia Police.
Lt. Kris Kelley said this is not the first time they have arrested Goodale at this location.
