Police arrested a Keene man Thursday evening after he allegedly struck an officer in the face.

Ethan W. Lord, 23, was arrested on the charges of simple assault and resisting arrest on Chapman Road, Keene Police Sgt. Thaddeus “T.J.” Derendal said.

Police were called to the area after receiving a call about a loud argument on the street at around 8:35 p.m., according to Derendal.

Derendal said Officer Matthew Bomberg, who responded to the scene, attempted to arrest Lord, who was having an argument with a woman. Derendal said he did not have the name of the woman. 

Lord was released on personal recognizance bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 5, Derendal said.
