---- — MANCHESTER — Police arrested a Gloucester man early Thursday morning on charges of speeding, operating under the influence of drugs, possession of a class A substance, B substance and E substance.

According to police, Michael Terrine, 22, of 417 Main St. was travelling at 82 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone when he was pulled over by officer Howard Lewis on School Street.

Lewis found Terrine in possession of heroin and marijuana, in addition to two painkillers, oxocodone and suboxone. He was soon arrested and his court date was set for Nov. 23 at 9 a.m.

Officer Ryan Machaine said the exact amounts of the drugs were not listed in the police report, but they were all for personal use, not for alleged distribution.

At 1:50 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, the Fire Department ‘s rescue squad responded to a Butler Avenue resident who had fainted. The man later refused medical treatment, and was not transported to any hospital.

Also on Nov. 22, shortly after 10 p.m., police said they received several obscene phone calls from a resident on Old Essex Road.

When police responded, they said the man was in an “altered mental status,” and may have had mental health issues.

Police said he was “out of control” and erratic. After police restrained him, he was sent to the Beverly Hospital.

Multiple residents on Summer Street called at 12:40 p.m. Thursday to complain about a toolbox and nails being left in the road. Police responded, and the owner of the tools removed them from the street.
