June 11, 2018

SALEM, N.H. (AP) — Police responding to a fight that broke out at a wedding reception at a New Hampshire bar arrested a guest, saying he choked someone and fled.

NH1 reports that 24-year-old Colby Dion, of North Andover, Massachusetts, was confronted by several guests in a Salem bar where the wedding party took place Sunday night. It’s unclear what initially started the fight. Police said the victim had injuries consistent with being choked.

Police said Dion fled into nearby woods and they used their K-9 unit to find him in several minutes.

Dion was charged with one count of domestic violence and another count of resisting arrest. He was to be arraigned Monday; it wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
