Man who ran for Rockingham County Sheriff pleads not guilty in assault, impersonation case
SEABROOK - A man who ran for Rockingham County Sheriff in several past elections has pleaded not guilty to charges that he impersonated a police officer and hit a man in the back with a sledgehammer.
David Lovejoy, 51, of Portsmouth, filed his plea Thursday in Seabrook District Court.
The charges stem from a fight in January at Lovejoy's business - Superior Security, Alarm and Communications in North Hampton - after he and a man who worked for him got into a dispute about wages.
