MANCHESTER - Police say a man who fit the description of a domestic violence suspect punched an officer when they tried to question him.
Officers approached Lovensky Jonick Maschabaz-Mesidor, 25, of Manchester, at the intersection of Elm and Merrimack streets Wednesday around noon.
Police say Officer Battistelli advised Maschabaz-Mesidor that he had violated a state law for walking in the roadway and failing to use a crosswalk and was therefore required by law to provide his basic information.
Police then reported that Maschabaz-Mesidor allegedly "got in the officer's face" and told him to "stand down." When police attempted to place him into custody for violation level jay-walking, police reported Maschabaz-Mesidor became combative.
Police said officers tried to put Maschabaz-Mesidor in handcuffs but he resisted.
Officers used a Taser on Maschabaz-Mesidor but said it had no effect. Police said he then punched one of the officers in the face.
Police said Maschabaz-Mesidor fought with officers for several minutes, until they were able to put him in handcuffs.
Maschabaz-Mesidor is charged with three counts of simple assult, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.
He appeared in Manchester district court Friday.
