Derry man arrested
after brief, slow-speed Hudson chase

HUDSON -- A low-speed chase early Sunday in Hudson ended when the suspect drove his vehicle into a snow bank at the end of a dead end road.

Hudson police said that at 2:22 a.m., Officer Michael Davis saw a white Pontiac Grand Prix driving south on Derry Street, allegedly operated by a man Davis said he knew was wanted on felony forgery warrants out of Hudson and Londonderry. Davis attempted to stop the vehicle as it turned onto Lindsay Street, but he said the driver refused to stop and continued taking side streets throughout the center of Hudson to avoid being pulled over.

The vehicle was traveling at about 20 mph when Davis said he watched it turn left from Ferry Street onto Third Street — a dead end.

The driver, Daniel Marchant, 31, of Derry, drove the vehicle into a snow bank at the end of the road, police said. Marchant was not injured, and was arrested and charged with two counts of forgery (felonies) and one count of disobeying a police officer. Bail was set at $10,000 cash or surety.

Marchant was unable to post bail and was transported to the Hillsborough County House of Correction in Manchester. He is scheduled to be arraigned at the 9th Circuit Court in Nashua Monday.
