Biker faces charges after high-speed chase at 127 mph
A trooper spotted a motorcycle northbound on Interstate 93 and clocked it at 127 mph in a 65 mph zone just north of the Hooksett rest area.
The pursuit was terminated, but another trooper who heard about the chase on the radio was monitoring I-393 to see if the motorcycle was going that way. Trooper First Class Matt Partington saw the motorcycle take Exit 3 at a high-rate of speed, run a red light and crash into the guard rail across the road.
The dog located Fries in about 45 minutes, then detained him after he refused to comply with troopers' commands, police said.
According to the release, Fries was in possession of a hypodermic needle, smoking pipe and crack cocaine. He was being held at Merrimack County Jail on charges of reckless operation, operating without a motorcycle license, disobeying a police officer, transportation of drugs, conduct after an accident, resisting arrest or detention and possession of a controlled drug.
It is the fourth time in the month of August that N.H. State Police have reported an arrest of a motorcyclist going 120 mph or faster.
