WOLFEBORO — Local police have a arrested a New Durham man for drunken driving and other charges after receiving a report of a disturbance.

Police identified the man as David Spence, 35, of New Durham.

Police received a report of a disturbance at a local business around 3:50 p.m. Wednesday. The officer who went to the business notified other officers on duty to be on the lookout for a Ford Ranger with Maine registration plates.

About 10 minutes later, police said, an officer spotted the vehicle matching that description operating erratically and ordered the driver to pull over on Middleton Road at the Alpine Meadows Road intersection.

The officer requested another officer come to the scene to conduct a field sobriety test. When Spence started acting “aggressive and erratic,” prompting the officer to ask for assistance.

Spence was placed under arrest for driving under the influence of an intoxicating substance, driving after suspension and disorderly conduct.

As Spence was being transported to Carroll County Jail he became highly combative, aggressive and uncontrollable, police reported. His unruly behavior continued once he was placed in the custody of jail personnel, the police said in a statement.

Spence is scheduled to appear in Third Circuit Court-District Division-Ossipee on Sept. 12.
