    Police in New Hampshire arrested a motorcyclist after a high speed chase Sunday night.

    Around 5:35 p.m., a Hollis police officer observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Proctor Hill Road near the Brookline town line. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but the motorcycle increased its speed to 100 MPH.
