A Manchester man who allegedly pulled the front tire of a vehicle on Route 43 in Northwood has been indicted by a grand jury in Rockingham County Superior Court in Brentwood.
Luke Foster, 20, is charged with criminal threats with a lethal weapon and three counts of reckless driving with a lethal weapon related to the incidents in Deerfield and Northwood on May 9.
According to court documents, on the day in question, Foster first pointed a shotgun at a person and their vehicle as they drove past the black truck Foster was driving in Deerfield. He then fired the shot across the road.
Northwood Police were then called at 4:15 p.m. after Foster allegedly shot at a second vehicle, a silver sedan, while driving on Highway 43.
Northwood Police Chief Glen Drolet said on the day of the incident that a front tire had burst in the car of the second victim.
Drolet said they found Foster and the black truck he was driving about a third of a mile down the road. Foster had parked at someone’s house.
Numerous state soldiers have been called in to help defuse the situation and take Foster into custody.
The truck Foster was driving was towed.
Foster is due to attend an impeachment and disposition conference on August 12.
