State police arrest motorist clocked at 130 mph


NASHUA - A local man is charged with reckless operation after a state trooper clocked his car going 130 mph on the F.E. Everett Turnpike.

Carl McCoy, 65, was arrested Tuesday at 6:30 a.m. after New Hampshire State Police trooper Brian Viglione saw a 2008 BMW 1-Series heading north on the highway at a high rate of speed and in a reckless manner, according to a news release.

Viglione clocked the car doing 130 mph in the posted 55 mph speed zone while making lane changes, state police said.

He pulled the car over and the driver, identified as McCoy, was arrested.

McCoy was given a March 6 arraignment date in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.

Last August, McCoy was arrested on a charge of felonious sexual assault alleging he assaulted a girl he knows at a city residence the previous month.
