Police dress as firefighters to arrest NH man

NEWPORT, N.H. (AP) - Police in Newport, N.H., say they dressed
as firefighters to trick and arrest a man.
Police set off a fire alarm to evacuate an apartment building
Tuesday night and arrested 34-year-old Matthew Miller when he
opened his door.
Earlier, an officer knocked at Miller's door after neighbors
complained about loud music. Miller pointed a shotgun at the
officer, who talked Miller into setting it down but backed off when
he saw weapons and a toddler inside.
Officers returned dressed as firefighters to draw Miller out of
his apartment and avoid a standoff. Police say Miller is a
convicted felon with a history of violence.
New Hampshire's largest firefighters' union is protesting the
disguises.
