Pursuit Ends In Arrest

Troop B

LONDONDERRY, N.H. – A Massachusetts man was arrested and is facing multiple charges following a weekend pursuit. 

Yesterday, March 30, 2024, at 2:29 a.m., Trooper Guilbeault of the Troop B barracks observed a vehicle traveling at speeds exceeding 100 mph while failing to maintain its lane of travel on Interstate 93 in Londonderry. Trooper Guilbeault attempted to stop the vehicle, which was traveling north, but the driver continued at speeds over 100 mph and refused to stop. A pursuit was initiated, and the vehicle was identified as a gray 2020 Chevrolet Trax.

During the pursuit, the driver of the Trax accelerated to a speed of 108 mph and operated erratically. The vehicle continued north onto Interstate 293 in Manchester, where State Troopers assigned to the Troop D barracks were able to deploy stop sticks just north of exit 7. The stop sticks successfully deflated two tires and the vehicle stopped at mile marker 9.2 on the northbound side of I-293 in Manchester. 

The driver of the Trax was identified as Jonathen Petrie, 32, of Bedford, Massachusetts.

Petrie was arrested by Troopers and is facing charges of reckless conduct, disobeying an officer and resisting arrest, along with other violation-level offenses. He is scheduled to appear in Manchester District Court.

Anyone who may have additional information regarding this incident is asked to contact Trooper Guilbeault at (603) 223-4381 or
