1 min read

CONCORD — A vehicle pursuit in the early hours of Monday ended with a K-9 apprehension after a driver led state police on a high-speed chase through Bow and Concord.

The incident began when Trooper Davis from the New Hampshire State Police Troop D barracks attempted to stop a vehicle for speeding and a defective equipment violation on Interstate 93 northbound near Bow at approximately 1:41 a.m.

The driver, identified as 37-year-old Richard Gomez of Lawrence, Massachusetts, failed to yield to Davis’s emergency lights and sirens, accelerating to speeds of 110 mph.

Gomez exited I-93 in Concord, experiencing severe lane control problems and briefly driving on the wrong side of Loudon Road.

The pursuit concluded when Gomez abandoned his vehicle at an apartment complex and fled on foot.

Trooper Davis’s K-9 partner, Mando, quickly apprehended Gomez after a brief chase.

Facing multiple charges, including disobeying a police officer, resisting arrest, aggravated driving while intoxicated, operating after suspension, reckless conduct, and reckless operation, Gomez will be arraigned at the Concord District Court.

He also had two active New Hampshire bench warrants for his arrest.

Gomez refused bail and is scheduled for a court appearance on Feb. 5 at 11 a.m.
