CONCORD (AP) — A Portsmouth man convicted of second-degree assault in an incident in which he hit two women with his car in Hampton is seeking to have his convictions overturned.
The Portsmouth Herald reports that 19-year-old Remi Gross-Santos argued in his March 30 appeal to the state Supreme Court that police didn't have probable cause to arrest him in June 2014.
Prosecutors argued last month that the injuries of then-69-year-old Karen Weinhold and then-60-year-old Lisa Beaudry, both of Hampton, warranted the arrest of Gross-Santos. They say police had probable cause because Gross-Santos caused the women serious bodily injury.
Gross-Santos was convicted last June of hitting them with his vehicle while driving home. A jury acquitted him of aggravated driving under the influence.
Oral arguments haven't been scheduled in the case.
