    N.H. Man to Be Arraigned for Police Chase

    A New Hampshire man will be arraigned from the hospital on Thursday after allegedly leading state police on a chase after failing to stop.

    Fifty-one-year-old Gino Ross of Derry faces multiple charges, including disobeying a police officer, reckless driving and resisting arrest.

    According to state police, a trooper tried to pull over a white 2009 Cheverolet Silverado pickup truck on I-93 northbound in Salem on Wednesday night for driving with unspecified broken equipment and allegedly being involved in suspicious activity in the Salem rest stop.

    When the pickup didn't stop, a pursuit started, state police said, which continued when the pickup left I-93 and continued to evade law enforcement on side streets through Salem, Windham, Derry and Londonderry.

    Police say the Ross avoided spike strips and turned off his headlights, almost triggering a head-on collision between him and another state police cruiser.

    Eventually, the pickup truck re-entered I-93 north via exit 4, and soon came to a stop near mile marker 12.6 in Londonderry, police said.

    Authorities say they released a state police K9, which bit him, and Ross was taken into custody without further incident.

    He was taken to Elliot Hospital for treatment for the dog bite and pre-existing medical conditions.
