    Conservation officers and police in the northern New Hampshire town of Groveton say a teenage snowmobiler put others at risk when he led them on a high-speed chase.

    Two conservation officers say they tried to stop 19-year-old Patrick Guay of Groveton at about 6:30 Saturday night because of loud exhaust. Authorities say Guay sped away - endangering other snowmobilers - and at one point ran into one officer's snowmobile. Then he fled on foot.

    Officers tracked him across the Ammonoosuc River and into a horse pasture next to Route 110.

    Once apprehended, Guay was charged with felony operation with a suspended license, being a habitual offender, disobeying an officer, resisting arrest and numerous violations.

    He is due in court April 20. It was not known if he has a lawyer.
