State poice troopers later saw the BMW traveling south on I-93, and after the driver failed to stop, a pursuit was initiated in Lincoln. The chase ultimately ended in Campton, just north of the Plymouth town line, where troopers were able to stop the vehicle.

The driver, identified by police as 38-year-old Barry A. English Jr., of Nashua, was taken into custody and the southbound travel lanes were briefly closed as a result. No details were released on the charges he faces or when he might appear in court.

The case remains under investigation by state police, in cooperation with Nashua and Newport, Vermont, police. Anyone with information that could assist with the investigation is asked to contact state police Sgt. Stefan Czyzowski at 603-223-4381.
