Authorities say a New Hampshire man who took hostages at a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign office in 2007 has been arrested after he walked away from a minimum-security correctional facility.

State Department of Corrections spokesman Jeff Lyons says Leeland Eisenberg was arrested by Manchester police without incident Monday.

The 52-year-old Eisenberg was missing from his room during a head count Sunday at the Calumet (kal-yoo-MEHT') Transitional Housing Unit in Manchester.

He was sentenced in 2010 to 3 ½ to 7 years for probation violations. He would have been eligible for parole in August.

Eisenberg spent about two years behind bars for the siege at Clinton's Rochester campaign office in which he claimed to have a bomb. No one was hurt. The bomb turned out to be road flares.
