Contoocook man charged after chase on Interstate 89

HOPKINTON - A Contoocook man faces several charges after leading Henniker and state police on a mid-morning chase along Interstate 89 after a domestic disturbance on Wednesday.

The chase began in Henniker at 10:20 a.m. and ended in Hopkinton when police deployed a tire deflation device to stop the puickup trruck driven by Lawrence Martell, 34, who was said to be considering suicide and armed with a knife, according to a statement from New Hampshire State Police in Concord.

Martell was wanted in connection with a domestic violence, simple assault charge, police said.

After hitting the deflation device, police said Martell jumped from his Dodge Dakota pickup, which then crashed into a guardrail along the snow-covered median.

He was charted with felony reckless conduct for swerving and accelerating toward troopers as they attempted to deploy the deflation device from the median.

He was also charged with resisting arrest, reckless driving and disobeying an officer, and was transported to the New Hampshire Hospital in Concord for psychological evaluation.
