Hooksett police arrested a man Friday after he fell out of a vehicle, which then rolled into a utility pole.

Francis Bemis, 58, of Hooksett, initially provided a fake name to the responding officers, according to a release from the Hooksett Police Department.

While police investigated the incident, they discovered Bemis had three electronic bench warrants from Derry, Manchester and Merrimack courts for driving offenses, plus a no-bail warrant out of Hillsborough County for theft offenses and an extraditable warrant from New York City for burglary.

Police took Bemis into custody and also charged him with obstructing government administration, disobeying an officer, driving after license revocation for DUI, false inspection sticker, being a fugitive from justice and misuse of plates.

After executing a search warrant on the vehicle on Saturday, Hooksett police said they found a 12-gauge shotgun and five shotgun shells in the rear of the vehicle, which Bemis was not permitted to have due to his previous felony convictions. Hooksett police said that additional charges are pending.
