MASON, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire police say they have arrested a man suspected of assaulting and injuring a police chief during a traffic stop in Mason.

Police say they arrested 38-year-old Russell N. Monbleau without incident on Tuesday morning at a residence in Fitchburg, Mass.

Mason police says Chief Hutchens was trying to arrest Monbleau on Friday night when Monbleau struck him several times and threw a metal chair at him knocking him to the ground.

Monbleau then ran into the woods. Police searched the area with dogs but were unable to find him.

Police arrested the driver of the car, 34-year-old Danielle Dickstein of Amherst, on charges of possession of crack cocaine and marijuana.

The Nashua Telegraph reports that Monbleau turned himself in four days later, according to police records.
