CLAREMONT, N.H. (WCAX) - A 25-year-old Claremont man will be in court Friday after being accused of a stop-and-go car chase.

Police say they chased Louis Gratacos III last Wednesday in his car near Stevens High School in Claremont before stopping for safety reasons. Then the chase began again in the Bluff school area. Police say Gratacos hit two parked cars trying to get away from officers.

After other attempts by officers to pursue him, Gratacos abandoned his car on Hunter Circle and fled on foot.

He was arrested Thursday on charges including reckless conduct with a deadly weapon and witness tampering - both felonies.
