New Hampshire State Police said a Windham police officer tried to pull over the car, which had a Massachusetts registration, just after midnight on the westbound side of Route 111 on Sunday morning, but the driver drove off. Officers from both the Derry and Londonderry police departments began chasing the car as it continued racing from the police, eventually shaking the authorities on the eastbound side of Route 102. Officers pursued the car onto Interstate 293 northbound until the car came to a stop in Manchester after running out of gas. The driver, Joshua Blodgett, 26, of Manchester, was arrested after allegedly struggling with officers. A female passenger was also taken into protective custody. Blodgett was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, disobeying a police officer, reckless conduct, operating after suspension, and resisting arrest.
