Well, this one is a little weird.
Apparently a New Hampshire resident really didn’t want to pay his cab fare. When the cab driver confronted him over the fare, the passenger allegedly bit him. Yep, bit him.
According to Nashua Patch,
Brian Paradise, who is licensed to carry a concealed weapon, pulled out his handgun during the incident, which happened just before 1 a.m. on Route 101A near Northern Boulevard in Amherst.
Amherst Police arrested Brouillette and charged him with simple assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He was later released on $3,000 personal recognizance bail pending arraignment in Milford on Jan. 9.
Lester said that while SK Cabs does not encourage drivers carry weapons, many do.
The suspect was charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
This is another example of a defensive gun use in which no shots were fired and no one was injured. This is the most common type of defensive gun use and they are often underreported in the media.
This is only the 4th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of New Hampshire. This is the 1,038th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
