CONCORD, N.H. — A state trooper who has been under investigation by the state police for his off-duty conduct is now also facing criminal charges and a psychiatric evaluation following an incident at state police headquarters Wednesday afternoon.
James Conrad, 49, of Mountain Road, Concord, threatened to shoot a Concord police officer and state police employees Wednesday, according to court records. He also resisted arrest and placed a harassing telephone call to his estranged wife in violation of the terms of their pending divorce agreement, the records said.
The state police said Conrad made the threats about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday while they were investigating complaints about his off-duty conduct. The state police declined to discuss those complaints or their investigation against Conrad. But according to police records contained in a Laconia court file, Conrad is being investigated for allegedly using his police contacts and emergency lights to search for his wife during a domestic dispute.
