New Hampshire man arrested for the 153rd time says: I’ll plead guilty

A New Hampshire man has been arrested for the 153rd time, this time after he was accused of punching someone in the face over the weekend.

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A New Hampshire man has been arrested for the 153rd time, this time after he was accused of punching someone in the face over the weekend.

Forty-nine-year-old Portsmouth resident Paul Baldwin told a judge Monday he plans to plead guilty to the assault, along with trespassing and alcohol charges.

He says he’s had a long battle with alcohol and was trying to correct the problem during his most recent one-year jail term, which ended last week.

The Foster’s Daily Democrat newspaper says Baldwin’s record dates to 1984 and includes 152 other arrests, eight trespass orders, 75 citations, four Social Security aliases and 17 name aliases.

Prosecutor Rena DiLando says she didn’t have time to read Baldwin’s full criminal record because it’s so long.
