Police Pepper Spray, Arrest Man Trying To Enter NH High School

HOLLIS, N.H. (CBS) – A young man was pepper-sprayed and arrested after trying to enter a high school in New Hampshire Wednesday morning.

Police say 21-year-old Eric Geller of Hollis had been warned in the past to stay away from Hollis Brookline High School, but he came back around 6 a.m.

An employee saw him and called police.

When an officer arrived, authorities say Geller resisted arrest, and she was forced to use pepper spray to subdue him.

Geller was charged with criminal trespass, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, all misdemeanors.

He was released on $1,500 bail.

He will be arraigned in Nashua District Court on March 21.

Police told WBZ-TV there was “no legitimate reason” for Geller to be at the school.

They say he mentioned something about wanting to “teach students,” but it didn’t make much sense.

    Is Hollis near the Nuke Plant? He looks like a young Chris Mathews, and just as crazy. I say execute the creep for the hair alone.

    Why? For a news station, this story is rather lacking material.

    He obviously has some mental issues. I don’t get why a pretty small incident that is clearly because of someone’s personal issues needs to be broadcast with his picture on a news site.

    Tried to enter? The note I got from the HS principal said he was walking in the hallways at 6am. So who’s right?
