CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A driver traveling 110 miles an hour on Interstate 93 in a car that was reported stolen fled from the vehicle after police successfully flattened the tires, and was arrested following a search, New Hampshire officials said.

The driver, 19, from Meriden, Connecticut, was scheduled to appear in court following the pursuit early Wednesday. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

The car was first spotted speeding in Bow. Police pursued it into Concord, and set up stop sticks to deflate the tires.

The driver continued to travel with flattened tires and ended up on Interstate 89 before stopping on a dead end road. The driver and two passengers fled. The driver was found during a police dog search about 90 minutes later. He was arrested on a number of felony charges.
