ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man wanted by authorities in Maine is facing charges after crashing his car into a house while being chased by police.
Authorities say Michael Stringer, of Rochester, took off when police tried to pull him over on a Rochester street about 3:30 a.m. Saturday for a motor vehicle violation.
Officials say Stringer failed to negotiate a corner while driving at a high speed and slammed into a house in a residential area. Nobody was at home at the time. Stringer was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Stringer was charged with being a fugitive from justice, reckless operation, disobeying an officer, drug possession, operating without a license and taking the car without the owner’s consent.
Police say Stringer was wanted in Maine for a probation violation.
