Dick Marple is a military veteran, former cop, and four-term state representative from Hooksett, New Hampshire.
In May of 2016, he was arrested on a warrant for driving with an invalid license and released on $4,000 personal recognizance.
He attended an arriagnment in June (video here) and challenged the court’s jurisdiction among other things, and then was arrested while campaigning on election day, November 9th. Police say he failed to appear at Concord District Court to answer to charges of driving while license suspended and “prohibitions” regarding an allegedly invalid license.
This week, Dick was back in court for a case status hearing, where he let the judge have it, in front of a full courtroom. Here’s the amazing video:
In addition to this court battle, Marple is also facing down the town of Hooksett regarding unpaid property taxes. He’s more than two years past due, and according to the Union Leader, the town government has already “tax deeded” (stolen) his property from him on paper. Now they have to decide to sell the property and throw him from the home that he thought that he owned.
