Atkinson teen leads police on 2-state chase, hits 2 cruisers, drives at Salem officers


SALEM - An Atkinson teen was arrested in Lowell Tuesday night following a high-speed police chase that began in Salem, headed north to Londonderry and then back down Interstate 93 into Massachusetts. He allegedly drove at Salem police officers and hit two cruisers.

Jeremiah Remy, 19, of Atkinson, was eventually arrested about 11:10 p.m. in Lowell's Kearney Square. Police said the chase began in Salem when police arrived at the La Quinta hotel to serve a probation violation warrant on Remy at 10:30 p.m. Police said Remy fled out the rear exit of the building and jumped into a white Ford pick-up truck. As officers tried to arrest Remy, he accelerated toward the officers, all of whom needed to jump out of the way in order to avoid being struck, police said.

At times, his vehicle reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour as he led police north to Londonderry before turning around and heading south on I-93 into Massaschusetts. Massachusetts State Police deployed stop sticks in Dracut, Mass. on Route 110, blowing out one of the tires on the white pick-up truck Remy was driving. The truck continued on for about five miles before Remy allegedly ditched the truck and tried taking off foot. He was arrested about a block away. Because he has a prosthetic arm, an ambulance was on scene to evaluate Remy but he refused medical attention, police said.

He is expected to be arraigned in Lawrence District Court this morning. What charges Remy will face in Massachusetts is unclear. Salem Police said he will face several charges in New Hampshire including four counts of second-degree assault.
