Police Misconduct

A Massachusetts State Trooper accused of assaulting a woman and then fleeing from police last weekend in Exeter, N.H. will be held in preventative detention pending a bail hearing next Wednesday.

According to an affidavit, Exeter police responded to a 9-1-1 call early Sunday morning. 

The alleged victim said Sgt. Bryan Erickson, 38, had assaulted her, resulting in bruises and scratches.

New Hampshire's attorney general says the names of police officers investigated on suspicion of misconduct won't be added to a confidential state list if the allegations aren't supported.

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said Monday two recent state supreme court decisions made clear that officers are entitled to due process regarding their placement on and removal from what was formerly known as the "Laurie List."
