A state trooper arrested in November who is accused of resisting arrest and making threats has asked a judge to suppress the evidence in his case. Attorney Eric Wilson, who represents Trooper James Conrad, argued in a court filing that Conrad wasn't arrested according to legal protocol and that the collection of evidence against him was done in violation of his rights. Conrad was arrested at the state police office Nov. 28 after learning that his wife had told supervisors that he had violated a restraining order she obtained. According to court records, Conrad became agitated and volatile and ignored efforts by his supervisor and others to calm him down. When Conrad tried to leave the office, state police staff restrained him, according to court records. Wilson said doing so amounted to an illegal arrest. The city prosecutor's office disagreed and argued in its own filing that Conrad was arrested under an "emergency aid" exception. Allowing Conrad to leave the office created a danger given his state of mind, the court filing said. A judge was to take up Wilson's request yesterday, but the hearing was postponed for reasons that were unavailable yesterday. Conrad is charged with violating a protective order, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and criminal threatening. The last charge alleges that Conrad threatened to take the gun of a Concord police officer who responded to the state police office and that Conrad threatened to kill everyone in the room. Conrad is prohibited from having contact with the state police office while his case is pending. [Source here]
