The Associated Press

YORK, Maine — Police in Maine have arrested a New Hampshire man after a high-speed car chase and brief foot chase.

WCSH-TV reports that Christopher Archambault of Farmington, N.H. is being held at the York County Jail on $6,000 bail. He is charged with attempting to elude police, receiving stolen property and reckless conduct.

Authorities say Archambault was driving a Ford Focus with Maine plates that had been stolen in Rochester, N.H. on Dec. 19.

When officers tried to stop Archambault Saturday night, he sped off and led them on a car chase at speeds topping 85 mph. Police say he wound up on a dead-end street in York and was apprehended after a brief foot chase.

It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
