(Continued)

In March 2011, he was arrested on a bench warrant. In July 2013, he was arrested for simple assault, and in October 2013 he was arrested for robbery and second-degree assault.

As recently as October, Bergeron was arrested and charged with second-degree assault and robbery after an incident on Route 107. Three months earlier, Bergeron was arrested on Kimberly Lane and charged with simple assault.

A search of Bergeron’s YouTube account shows multiple videos of him rapping or lip-syncing to music and one occasion mentions New Hampshire’s area code, 603, in a song. Bergeron is seen wearing baseball caps backward, sunglasses and jewelry.

At the time of the videotaped incident, Seabrook Police Department was led by now-retired Chief Patrick Manthorn. Bitomske was sworn in as the department’s newest chief in November 2012. Manzi was not town manager at the time of the video.
