Sheriff's office says Mass. driver arrested after 2-town chase
OSSIPEE — A Massachusetts man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after leading police on a chase through Wakefield and Ossipee, nearly hitting oncoming traffic, authorities said.
Multiple 9-1-1 calls reporting a vehicle driving all over the roadway — almost striking oncoming vehicles head-on — started coming coming into the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office regional dispatch center about 2:10 p.m.
The Jeep Liberty was eventually forced to a stop in Ossipee by a cruiser from the sheriff’s office, and Daniel Ladouceur, 51, of Pittsfield, Mass., was removed and arrested, according to a Carroll County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Ladouceur faces felony charges of criminal threatening and reckless conduct and a misdemeanor charge of disobeying an officer.
The vehicle was first reported on Route 16 in Wakefield in the area of the Union lights. Wakefield police officers, who attempted but were unable to stop the SUV in the Route 16 and Stoneham Road area of Wakefield, were joined in the pursuit by the sheriff’s office and the Ossipee and Freedom police departments, according to the release.
Sheriff’s deputies deployed spike strips in the area of routes 16 and 171 in Ossipee, deflating some of the SUV’s tires, but the driver continued northbound on Route 16. The remaining tires were deflated after Ossipee police used spike strips near Clarks Grain Store, just north of routes 16 and 28, but the driver continued on Route 16, almost striking oncoming traffic as well as a pursuing police cruiser, the sheriff’s office said.
After the SUV was stopped by the cruiser, Ladouceur was taken into custody about 2:40 p.m. The deputy was not injured and his cruiser sustained minimal damage, the sheriff’s office said.
The Madison and Tamworth police departments and the N.H. State Police also assisted.
