SEABROOK – Seabrook police officers arrested South Main Street resident Marlin Fogg on Tuesday after a brief standoff at his home, according to a press release from the department.

Fogg faces multiple outstanding warrants from the Portsmouth Police Department for domestic violence-second degree assault, domestic violence-assault, domestic violence criminal restraint and breach of bail conditions. Fogg, 36, was also charged with resisting arrest or detention and being a fugitive from justice. The fugitive charge stems from outstanding warrants from the Salisbury Police Department.

According to the press release, Fogg was arrested at approximately 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday after officers saw him shoveling snow outside his 130 South Main St. home. When Fogg saw the police, he ran inside. Officers from Seabrook, Salisbury, and the New Hampshire State Police surrounded the house and tried to contact Fogg. After about 30 minutes, police began talking with Fogg, who then surrendered.

Fogg will appear in the 10th Circuit Court in Hampton on Jan. 15, on the Seabrook charges. He was later driven to the Portsmouth Police Department to be booked and bailed on the warrants from that department.

“This is another example of good police work by our officers," Seabrook Acting Chief of Police Brett Walker said in a statement. "They were aware that Fogg was wanted and checked known hangouts until they located him. Responding officers did an exceptional job ensuring a peaceful resolution to this case while ensuring the safety of Mr. Fogg and surrounding residents."
