    Mass. Man Arrested in NH After High-Speed Pursuit
    Jessy Rodriguez Ruiz, 38, of Lawrence, Massachusetts, was arrested after allegedly leading police on a high-speed chase in New Hampshire.

    New Hampshire state police say a driver led them on a 35-mile pursuit along Interstate 93 reaching over 100 miles an hour before he was arrested.

    A trooper noticed a car veer off the road and strike a guardrail in Windham in a northbound lane at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday. It kept going.

    Police said the pursuit continued into Concord, where the car eventually headed north in a southbound lane before the driver fled and was found.

    He was identified as 38-year-old Jessy Rodriguez Ruiz, of Lawrence, Massachusetts, facing such charges as reckless conduct, possession of controlled and narcotic drugs, drunken driving and disobeying a police officer.

    He was released on personal recognizance bail and is scheduled for arraignment Nov. 14. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer; a phone number couldn't be found for him.
