    Updated:

    HUDSON, N.H. - A 57-year-old man was arrested Saturday night in Hudson, New Hampshire, and faces multiple charges after he crashed his car into a utility pole.

    Police and fire officials responded to the area of 100 Pelham Road around 9 p.m. last night where they found David Horne, of Hudson, walking away from the scene. He struck a utility pole with his 2008 Hyundai Elantra that caused the power to go out in the area.

    As officer Tyler Merrill approached, Horne walked away, resisted arrest and a struggle started.

    He was subdued after multiple tasers and taken into custody at the Hudson Police Department where he continued to be combative.

    Horne refused bail and was transferred to the Valley Street jail pending his arraignment on Monday at the Superior Court South.

    He has been charged with seven counts of assault on a police officer, two counts of resisting arrest or detention, attempted strangulation of a police officer, attempted taking of a police officer’s firearm, and driving while intoxicated.

    He suffered minor injuries from the accident but refused medical attention.

    Pelham Road was shut down for several hours while Eversource restored power and repaired the pole.

    The incident is under investigation and if anyone has information they’re asked to contact officer Merrill at tmerrill@hudsonnh.gov or (603) 886-6011.
