GILFORD (AP) - A New Hampshire man who objected to a book his daughter was assigned to read is suing the police officer who arrested him at a school board meeting.
William Baer of Gilford complained at a school board meeting in May that parents should have been notified about the book, "Nineteen Minutes" by Jodi Picoult because it includes sexually explicit content. After using his allotted two minutes to speak, he continued speaking and was arrested. A judge later dismissed the disorderly conduct charges, and Baer is now suing Lt. James Leach arguing that he was falsely arrested for exercising his right to free speech.
Leach did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.
