Collins then led police on a high speed pursuit through several Maine towns before crossing over into NH at Wakefield, where spike strips were then deployed, blowing the car's tires.

Collins continued on until the vehicle he was driving became disabled in Wolfeboro on Route 28 where he was arrested by police officers waiting.

He was immediately taken into custody where is he was held on $5,000 cash bail.

In Wolfeboro, he is being charged with the following: felony level fugitive from justice, felony level reckless conduct and felony level reckless operation; misdemeanor disobeying a police officer, misdemeanor speed, and yellow line violation.
