NH woman facing 5 different charges after allegedly dragging officer with car, resisting arrest


EXETER — A New Hampshire woman is facing five different charges after allegedly dragging a police officer with her car.

According to court documents, Judith Pesarik, 58 of Portsmouth, was stopped by an officer in Exeter on Dec. 8, 2016 after she was found screaming obscenities at people at the Exeter Hospital. When the officer requested for identification, Pesarik refused to show her drivers license, police said.

The officer then reportedly attempted to detain Pesarik, however she resisted before taking off in her vehicle. Court documents state that the officer was holding on to the drivers side door, and he was dragged for a short period before he fell to the ground.

Pesarik was arrested and is now being charged with reckless conduct, disobeying and officer, resisting arrest/detention, disorderly conduct and reckless driving. She is scheduled to be arraigned on May 5.
