    A man faces a litany of charges after police say he hit 100 mph while under the influence with a child's important medical equipment in a car he had no right to drive in Hampton, New Hampshire.

    Steven Nason, 31, of Springfield, Massachusetts, was arrested after a chase that begin just after 1 a.m. Sunday. Police say a state trooper tried to stop Nason for speeding and passing unsafely on U.S. Route 1, but that he got on Route 101 east and sped toward Hampton Beach, reaching 100 mph.

    Hampton Police soon found the car parked on Ashworth Avenue. After they talked to witnesses, police determined that Nason had taken the car without the owner's consent.

    Police say medical equipment, which the child of a person with whom Nason lives would need in case of an emergency, was in the car at the time.

    Nason is charged with aggravated DWI, child endangerment, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer and prowling.

    He was held on $7,500 and is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Seabrook.
