    The suspect who took police on a high speed chase through several New Hampshire neighborhoods is behind bars and being held on $100,000 cash only bail.

    Sixty-year-old George Bally of Nashua apologized in court Tuesday morning after police say he nearly killed two New Hampshire State Police troopers during a high speed chase the day before.

    "I am sorry for this, I didn't mean for any of this to happen," he said.

    Necn cameras were rolling when Bally went speeding by the wrong direction down a one way street, and then through congested side streets in Nashua. It all started, police say, at the intersection of Lowell and Union streets in Manchester, when Bally crashed into a car and took off.

    Bally was arraigned on a long list of misdemeanor and felony charges, including reckless conduct, and posession with intent to sell.

    State police and the Manchester court officer both described Bally's long criminal history with shop lifting, selling drugs and violating parole.

    Considering him an obvious flight risk and a danger to the public, the judge ordered Bally held on $50,000 cash-only bail in both Nashua and Manchester.

    During the pursuit, Trooper William Barrassi says Bally come within feet of smashing into troopers and construction working while speeding down I-293.

    The chase ended moments after Bally rammed a Nashua police cruiser. No one was seriously hurt through the entire ordeal. Bally will be back in court later this month.
