Nashua man pleads guilty after leading police on high-speed chase from Manchester to Nashua
NASHUA - A Nashua man accused of leading police on a high-speed chase that started in Manchester and ended in Nashua has agreed to plead guilty to reckless conduct, drug possession and several charges.
The plea deal for George Bally, 61, would require him to serve a minimum of 4 years and a maximum of 10 years in prison, with credit for time already served, roughly 10 months. He is also required to participate in any counseling, treatment or education recommended by prison officials.
The agreement was accepted by Judge Jacalyn Colburn in Hillsborough County Superior Court South.
Bally's arrest in March followed a chase that started when he reportedly pushed a passenger out of his car at the Amoskeag Rotary in Manchester.
From there, Bally took off on Route 293 South, passing state police working a construction detail who tried to stop his Jeep Cherokee.
Police say Bally just missed hitting a police cruiser and two construction workers as he continued south. An effort to deploy spike strips to stop him near the Bedford tolls failed.
Bally continued south into Nashua and got off at Exit 5E where he turned several times into side streets in an effort elude police. He eventually hit a parked car on Pine Street, then backed up hitting a Nashua police cruiser.
He was finally taken into custody after a short foot pursuit.
Police say they found what appeared to be methamphetamine in the car after Bally was arrested.
