Police say a motorcyclist in New Hampshire, clocked going 127 mph, bragged to officers about reaching 185 mph during the ensuing chase. Bad (ideas) to the bone!
According to the AP, a trooper spotted 31-year-old David J. Fries going 127 mph on Interstate 93 at about 2:45 a.m. on Saturday. Another trooper saw Fries crash into a guardrail after he exited the interstate, at which point he led officers on an hourlong foot chase.
Fries was caught with the aid of a police dog, and treated for injuries both from the crash and the dog.
Police said Fries, who had in his possession a hypodermic needle, smoking pipe, and crack cocaine, allegedly told them he got up to 185 mph before exiting the interstate.
He is being held on a $30,000 bail.
