MERRIMACK – Police say a Merrimack teen was arrested twice within a couple hours Monday, initially for allegedly calling 911 to have a close family member removed from his house and threatening police, then on accusations that he smashed out the rear window of the car belonging to the family member who had just bailed him out.

Illya Scott II, 18, a former Nashua resident and 2016 Nashua High School North grad now living at 16 Mill St. in Merrimack, was scheduled for arraignment Tuesday morning in Merrimack district court on a total of six charges stemming from the alleged incidents.

They include one count each of criminal threatening, making a false public alarm, resisting arrest, willful concealment, criminal mischief – domestic violence, and breach of bail conditions, according to police.

Police said the first three charges stemmed from the initial incident, in which Scott called police shortly after 11 a.m. Monday claiming there was an unknown man in his house who was refusing to leave.

Arriving officers located the man, whom police identified as “a close family member” of Scott’s. Police said Scott then “made repeated threats toward officers,” and when they tried to take him into custody he allegedly resisted and struggled with the officers.

The willful concealment charge stems from a previous investigation in which Scott was accused of stealing a cigar from a local store, police said.

He was transported to police headquarters and booked on the four charges, with bail being set at $5,000 personal recognizance.

A short time later, police said, Scott was released to a family member, but when the family member arrived at police headquarters to pick him up, Scott allegedly smashed out the rear window of the family member’s car.

Officers found Scott in the front parking lot and promptly took him into custody again, adding the charges of domestic-

related criminal mischief and breach of bail conditions to his list of offenses.

This time, Scott’s bail was set at $5,000 cash only, which resulted in him being transported to Valley Street jail in Manchester overnight pending Tuesday’s arraignment.
