    1 Arrested After Leading Police on High Speed Pursuit in NH
    New Hampshire State Police

    A man has been arrested and charged after leading police on a high speed pursuit.

    According to New Hampshire State Police, a trooper was monitoring traffic on Route 16 in Dover around 3 a.m. Saturday when he witnessed a vehicle traveling 86 mph in a 55 mph zone.

    The trooper then pulled over the 2014 Kia Forte. When the officer approached the vehicle, however, it sped off.

    A pursuit began and the Kia continued northbound on Route 16 in Rochester.

    The vehicle exited at exit 16, continuing onto Old Dover Road. The trooper ended the pursuit at this point.

    Shortly afterward, the driver encountered a dead end near Old Dover Road's intersection with Route 125. The operator immediately exited his vehicle and laid down on the ground to surrender, police said.

    The driver, identified as Michael McNamara, 30, of Dover, was taken into custody without incident.

    McNamara is charged with aggravated OUI, reckless operation and disobeying an officer.

    He is scheduled to appear in the 7th Circuit-District Division- Rochester Court on June 12.

    It is unclear if McNamara has an attorney.

    Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Trooper Matthew Bailey at 603-223-8490 or matthew.bailey@dos.nh.gov.
