Tasker was arrested on DWI charges after a three-car crash in Rochester on Gonic Road Tuesday at about 5:40 p.m. He allegedly struck another car, causing a three-car accident, police said.

An on-scene investigation led to the arrest of Tasker charging him with a driving while under the influence, a class B misdemeanor. Tasker was released on $1,000 cash bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 14.

Tasker was currently out on bail for sex and drug charges.

These charges stem back to when the mother of a 14-year-old girl filed a complaint with police in January, claiming Tasker had been soliciting her daughter for sex through Facebook. Tasker allegedly had met the girl and later contacted her via Facebook, and in a message is accusing of asking her age and then said “girls like you could get me into trouble.” Tasker is also accused of asking the girl to perform sexual acts.

Later, Tasker sent a Facebook message to an undercover police officer who was posing online as a 14-year-old girl.

Tasker was arrested in March after an investigation lasting several weeks. July's indictment stated Tasker possessed a variety of illegal and controlled substances, including Buprenorphine, Ecstasy, hash oil, marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms and cocaine.

The computer charge is a class B felony, meaning Tasker may face prison time as well as his name being on the sex offender registry.

Tasker resigned as representative in March.

Rockingham County Attorney Patricia LaFrance requested an expedited bail hearing, along with the motion to revoke Tasker's bail. She said he has 10 days to respond to motion.

Separately today, at the dispositional conference in Rockingham County Superior Court, the set a date for the trial to start on the week of May 1, 2017.
