Man Tasered 4 times by Police Indicted on Witness Tampering
A Rochester man involved in a domestic disturbance, who then eluded police who eventually had to taser him four times, has been indicted on a witness tampering charge in connection with the incident back in July. James Nessbit and an unidentified woman got into a verbal confrontation at the Lilac Mall on July 26th, which prompted Nessbit to cut wires under the womans car before fleeing the scene. When Police arrived at that scene, Nessbit returned to the Mall but fled again after seeing police. He was found driving on the Route 202 bypass, but did not heed officers request to stop and pull over. Eventually police found him in East Rochester after his car had broken down. A struggle occurred when police were apprehending Nessbit and he had to be tasered four times by officers on the scene. Police charged Nesbitt with three misdemeanors for criminal mischief, disobeying an officer, and resisting arrest. The County Attorneys office brought forward a witness tampering charge and a misdemeanor charge of simple assault of a police officer on July 27. Nesbitt will be arraigned on that witness tampering charge on today in Strafford County Superior Court. Nesbitt was also recently indicted on a burglary charge in a separate incident back on April 23d.
