A 24-year-old New Hampshire man had the ride of a lifetime this morning, zipping down Route 101 on his motorcycle at 145 miles per hour, New Hampshire State Police said. But the one thing he couldn’t get away from was a State Police aircraft.

Jakob Bastian of Dunbarton was arrested on charges of reckless conduct and disobeying a police officer, State Police said.

State troopers in an aircraft on routine traffic patrol allegedly saw him traveling 92 miles per hour on Route 101 eastbound in Candia, N.H. at about 8:30 a.m. The posted speed in the area is 65 miles per hour, State Police said.

Troopers on the ground tried to stop Bastian, but he allegedly accelerated to 145 miles per hour and out-raced them. Troopers in the aircraft continued to track Bastian as he exited on to Route 43 in Candia, and then Route 107 in Deerfield.

He pulled into a driveway in Deerfield, and allegedly attempted to hide from officers.

Trooper Charles George, who was in the aircraft, directed troopers on the ground to Bastian’s location.

Troopers arrested Bastian without incident.

Bastian was released on $2,500 cash bail and is to appear in Candia District Court May 14.
