ASHLAND, NH –Two motorcyclists were charged with reckless conduct after State Police say they were weaving in and out of traffic along I-93 at speeds of up to 160 mph and allegedly recording their travels using a GoPro video camera.
On Oct. 12 at approximately 1:30 p.m. Trooper Charles George of the New Hampshire State Police Special Enforcement Unit was conducting traffic enforcement on I-93 northbound in the town of Ashland when he observed two motorcycles approaching him at 118 mph in the posted 70 mph speed zone. Trooper George stopped Christopher Grant, 26, of Manchester, who was driving a 2014 Ducati Model 1199 motorcycle, and Brandon Clark, 25, of Weare, who was driving a 2010 Honda CBR 1000 motorcycle.
Grant and Clark were taken into custody for reckless driving and were later released on personal recognizance bail.
At the time of the initial arrest, a “GoPro” video camera was seized and a search warrant was subsequently applied for and granted concerning the video footage. As a result of evidence obtained, warrants were issued for Grant and Clark on new charges of reckless conduct based on State Police assertion that at times prior to their initial arrest they were passing vehicles at speeds up to 160 miles per hour.
Anyone who may have been in the area and witnessed two motorcycles passing traffic at an extremely high rate of speed around 1 p.m. on October 12 (Columbus Day) on Interstate 93 northbound in the area of Ashland are encouraged to contact Trooper George at 603-271-8821
Grant and Clark were arrested on the new charge of reckless conduct, a class B felony and both were released on personal recognizance bail pending arraignment in the Plymouth District Court on November 19, 2015.
