New Hampshire woman allegedly drove 109 mph while drunk, arrested after chase

EXETER, N.H. (AP) — Police have accused a New Hampshire woman of driving drunk and traveling up to 109 miles an hour while a trooper tried to stop her.

A trooper saw an SUV pass him at 93 miles an hour along Route 101 in Exeter early Thursday. The trooper caught up and initiated a traffic stop. The SUV came to a stop near Hampton, but drove away after the trooper got out of his cruiser, state police said.

The trooper once again caught up with the SUV on Route 101. The SUV did not stop for the trooper’s emergency lights and siren. It reversed direction and drove on the wrong side of a road. Troopers deployed stop sticks to deflate the vehicle’s front tires, police said.
