The suspect vehicle was located on Mechanic Street as it was traveling back toward the area where the victim was found. A Lebanon Officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to pull over.  The vehicle and suspect then stopped at the scene where officers attempted to detain him, but he resisted and was taken into custody after a brief struggle.

After a subsequent investigation,  Eric Briggs, age 27, of Lebanon, NH was arrested and charged with 2nd Degree Assault and Possession of the Controlled Drug Suboxone, both Class B Felonies, Driving While Intoxicated, a Class B Misdemeanor along with Resisting Arrest/Detention and Reckless Conduct, all Class A Misdemeanors.
