ROCKINGHAM — A 28-year-old man from North Clarendon was arrested following an incident in Westminster last month.
On January 14, authorities say they were on Route 103 at around 12:15 a.m.
Deputies observed a vehicle traveling south at 80 miles-per-hour in a posted 50 miles-per-hour area.
A deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, when it rapidly accelerated and turned off its lights.
The vehicle continued at an extremely high rate of speed on US Route 5 in Westminster southbound towards Bellows Falls, where deputies terminated the attempt to stop.
With the assistance of the Bellows Falls Police and Walpole Police Department, the vehicle in question was located at the intersection of Morgan Street and Pond Road in Bellows Falls.
The vehicle had its exterior lights turned off and then fled law enforcement again traveling at an extremely high rate of speed on Rockingham Street, The Square, and Westminster Street in Bellows Falls.
The vehicle later left the state of Vermont and into Walpole, NH.
After an investigation by the Windham County Sheriff’s Office with the assistance of the Walpole Police Department, the driver was identified as Christopher A. Fagans.
Fagans turned himself into deputies at the Windham County Sheriff’s Office yesterday and was arrested.
He was released on a citation to appear at a later date.
