HANCOCK, N.H. — Police say a motorcyclist traveling at speeds over 120 miles an hour has been arrested after leading officers on a chase through two New Hampshire towns.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2vsxPlY) Hancock officers said they tried to stop the motorcycle heading south on Route 202 on Tuesday night. The motorcycle continued into Peterborough. Police said at one point, the driver was attempting to hide in a driveway as an officer passed him, then drove directly toward a second officer.

Police said the driver eventually failed to navigate a corner and lost control of the motorcycle, crashing into a bush.

Police arrested 24-year-old Eric Nolet, of Lyndeborough. He was charged with reckless driving and disobeying an officer. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer, and a phone number couldn’t be found for him.
