A New Hampshire state lawmaker is facing criminal charges after he didn’t do his job… or at least that’s what he claimed.
Jeffrey Greyson (R-Wentworth) was busted by NH state police on Friday and charged with disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing and simple assault. He posed for a grim-faced mug shot before being released without bail.
Greyson’s arrest stemmed from a March 4 incident in which he accused a Wentworth Highway Department employee of paul mansonJoe was plowing snow outside the state representative’s house after a big storm.
Watch this wild video of Greyson blowing off his top as he struggles to walk in knee-high snow to confront Manson on the street.
Referring to the snow, Greyson shouted, “You don’t put that in my driveway! Push it! Off the road! Over there!”
Greyson was also cursing and barking at Manson, shouting, “Your job is to clear the street! Clear the street! Now, get in your truck and do your job!”
The matter got so heated that the police had to be called. After nearly a week of investigation, police arrested Grisson, who is serving his second term in the New Hampshire House of Representatives.
Manson recorded Greyson’s denunciation and posted the video on his Facebook page. He admits to a local TV reporter that he was pushing the snow into the Greyson’s driveway, and that he felt bad for doing it, but says he couldn’t help it.
He insisted that his job was to clear the roads, which eventually led to snow piling up on Grisson’s driveway and other driveways in the area.
As for Greyson, he addressed the matter in a statement, “I apologized to the man. He accepted my apology. That was several days ago, and we have both moved on.”
Greyson’s court date is set in May.
