A New York man gave NH State Troopers a run for their money during a high speed chase on I-89. NH State Police say that 25-year old William Cole of Kattskill Bay, NY was clocked by troopers going 120 mph on Interstate 89 on Tuesday night in New London. Trooper Ryan St. Cyr attempted to pull over Cole, but he refused to obey and initiated a high speed chase.
A trooper further down in Warner deployed a deflation device to try and puncture the car’s tires, and it caused Cole to pull over a few miles further down the highway where he was apprehended.
He was transported to Concord Hospital because it was determined that Cole was under the influence of drugs and was brought there as a safety precaution. He was subsequently charged with Disobeying a Police Officer, Reckless Driving, Reckless Conduct, and Driving Under the Influence of Drugs. Bail has not yet been set for Cole and a brief investigation is being conducted by authorities.
Both Sutton and New London assisted NH State Police in the chase and arrest.
