Vt. man charged in police chase wanted in NH

Posted: Updated:

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) - A man accused of leading police on a chase in Vermont is expected to be returned to New Hampshire to face other charges.

The Valley News reports that 27-year-old Timothy Keith of Bradford, Vt., pleaded not guilty Monday to negligent operation and trying to elude police. He is accused of driving faster than 100 mph during a chase through two towns on Route 5 Friday night. He's also facing charges in New Hampshire, where authorities say he failed to report for a prison sentence for a bail jumping conviction that was to be served on weekends.

Keith's public defender said she expects him to be returned to New Hampshire in about a week. She declined to comment further.
