MANCHESTER, NH – A Derry man was arrested after refusing to leave the Radisson when asked by staff for causing a disturbance in his hotel room, then refusing to comply with police, called to assist.

On October 17 at approximately 12:40 p.m. officers were called to the Radisson Hotel, 700 Elm Street, regarding a criminal trespass. Upon arrival, Officer Steven Cornacchia spoke with Radisson staff members and a hotel guest who was refusing to leave the premises, William Maloof, 25 of Derry.

According to a police narrative, Maloof was a guest at the hotel and was asked to leave for causing a disturbance inside of his 11th-floor hotel room. Officers Cornacchia and Sarah Kulig met with Maloof and asked him to remove his belongings from his room. He eventually complied and gathered his property before walking downstairs to the main lobby area. At this time, Maloof refused to leave and began arguing with hotel staff as he allegedly demanded a full refund.

The officers physically escorted Maloof to his vehicle, which was parked in the adjacent parking garage. Maloof continued to act disorderly with the officers and once again refused to leave the area. They convinced him to vacate the premises, so Maloof entered his vehicle and backed out of his parking spot at a high rate of speed. His actions caused him to collide with another legally parked vehicle. The officers had to jump out of the way to avoid being struck by his vehicle. They witnessed the reckless act and ordered him to stop his vehicle, but he refused and drove toward the main gate. The gate prevented him from leaving and allowed the officers to catch up to him.

Officers repeatedly ordered him from the vehicle, but he allegedly refused, and locked the car doors. Maloof temporarily complied by finally opening the door and exiting the vehicle. However, his compliance was short-lived because he fought with the officers as they attempted to place  him into handcuffs.

The arresting officers deployed a Taser, but the desired result was not immediate, so Officer Cornacchia tackled Maloof to the ground. After several more minutes of fighting, Maloof was placed into custody and charged with criminal trespass, conduct after and accident, resisting arrest/detention and reckless conduct (a felony). He was released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on November 20, 2015.
