Former UNH police officer faces drunk driving charge in Canterbury


CANTERBURY - A former University of New Hampshire police officer faces drunken driving charges in a case that state police kept under wraps for two weeks.

According to the Concord Monitor, the arrest on June 6 came to light after the newspaper received an anonymous letter from "Concerned Citizens" about the arrest. The newspaper was able to confirm the report after making several requests of state police, but no arrest report was written and no booking photo was taken, police said.

Former UNH police officer and UNH Law School security supervisor Diana Scott was charged with DUI after a car accident around 9:30 a.m. on June 6 in Canterbury.

State police declined to provide any investigative documents relating to Scott’s arrest, saying the matter was an “open” investigation pending court adjudication.

Scott has worked in the past with the U.S. Marshall Service and as a police officer in the town of Bow.

Her husband, Christopher J. Scott, has appeared on legislative salary reports as a congressional staffer for U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen as recently as March 31.
