    Rhode Island Man Leads Police on Pursuit Through New Hampshire, Mass.

    A Rhode Island man is facing multiple charges for leading police on a pursuit through New Hampshire and Massachusetts early Sunday morning.

    New Hampshire State Police first attempted to stop a reported stolen grey Nissan sedan on Interstate 89 in Warner at 2:15 a.m.

    The driver, later identified as Gregory Coffey, 33, of Providence, refused to stop and led troopers south on the highway, south on Interstate 93, and south on the Everett Turnpike towards Nashua.

    With the assistance of Nashua Police, spike strips were successfully deployed near exit 3, but authorities said Coffey kept fleeing and continued south onto the Daniel Webster Highway in Nashua.

    Another set of spike strips were deployed on the Daniel Webster Highway in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, where Coffey continued to drive on a rim.

    He eventually came to a stop and was taken into custody without incident just over the Chelmsford line.

    Coffey is being held on fugitive from justice charges by the Chelmsford Police Department. He is facing multiple charges out of Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

    Following a hearing, Coffey will be taken back to New Hampshire to answer multiple charges from the Nashua Police Department and the New Hampshire State Police.
