Jared Plamondon, 28, was arrested late Sunday evening following a lengthy police pursuit.
Shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday evening, Hudson Police Chief Jason Lavoie witnessed a hit-and-run accident at the intersection of Greely Street and Route 111.
Plamondon was said to have fled the scene in a white Chevrolet Cobalt, which Chief Lavoie began to follow.
'While following the vehicle and attempting to stop it, the suspect's vehicle drove in a reckless manner, which at one point placed Chief Lavoie in danger of being in a crash,' Police Captain William Avery said.
Officer Daniel Dolan and K9 Officer James Connor quickly joined the pursuit. At one point, the suspect's vehicle was clocked on the radar in excess of 100 miles per hour, according to police reports.
After leading police on a high-speed chase down Mammoth Road into Pelham, Plamondon's vehicle came to a grinding halt due to mechanical failure.
Fleeing into the nearby woods, Plamondon was eventually apprehended by Hudson K9 'Looch.'
After being transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center and treated for minor lacerations, Plamondon was charged with one count each of conduct after an accident, resisting arrest, disobeying an officer, driving after revocation or suspension and reckless operation.
Plamondon was arraigned on $5,000 cash or surety bail in the Nashua 9th Circuit Court early Monday morning.
A passenger, Lawrence Nelson, 28, of Nashua, also was taken into custody on several state parole and probation warrants, though he faces no charges from the Hudson Police.
