Man arrested after brief standoff with police NASHUA - A 35-year-old city man was arrested after a brief standoff with police late Tuesday. Brian D. St. Armand of 557 S. Main St. was arrested after he allegedly refused to cooperate with police who had responded to his residence after receiving a report from another person that he was threatening suicide with a firearm, Nashua police Sgt. Richard Widener said. About six police officers surrounded the residence and were forced to close a portion of Sout Main Street near Farmington Road, after receiving the report from a counselor at about 4:45 p.m., Widener said. After staging the perimeter around the residence, Widener said police at the scene were able to contact St. Armand by telephone, who initially cooperated with police and exited the residence at about 5:30 p.m. Upon leaving the residence however, Widener said St. Armand began swearing loudly and after allegedly refusing to quiet down was arrested for disorderly conduct. He was also charged with resisting arrest when he allegedly struggled with officers who were attempting to place handcuffs on him, Widener said. St. Armand did not appear to have access to any firearms at the residence, Widener said. St. Armand was being held at Nashua Police Department in lieu of $4,000 cash bail.
