NH woman facing charges after police chase
MIDDLETON, N.H. (AP) — A 31-year-old New Hampshire woman is facing a variety of charges after police say officers had to chase her through several towns before she was apprehended with the help of spike mats that stopped her vehicle.
Elizabeth Beinhorn, of Rochester, allegedly refused to stop for police on Monday night after her vehicle was spotted on the wrong side of the road on Route 11 in Rochester.
The pursuit went through Farmington and into Milton before the spike mats were used at the intersection of King’s Highway and Route 153 in Middleton.
Middleton Police Chief Randy Sobel told Foster’s Daily Democrat (http://bit.ly/UlL5wG) spike mats are used to slow suspects down by puncturing their tires.
He says the arrest was made by New Hampshire State Police troopers.
