A driver is facing felony charges on accusations he dragged a NH state trooper with his car and led law enforcement officers on multiple pursuits last night in the Seacoast. 28-year-old Michael Arrington, of Orlando, Florida, faces felony charges of reckless conduct and second-degree assault and misdemeanor charges of aggravated driving under the influence of liquor, and operating after revocation of suspension. Police said Arrington fled from Portsmouth police last night and was spotted minutes later at a gas station. When police approached him there, he fled again, dragging a state trooper for a short distance. The trooper suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment. Arrington’s car was later seen traveling south on Interstate 95 in Portsmouth, and police said he led officers on another chase before he stopped and was taken into custody. 

A man is lucky to have avoided serious injury after he needed to be rescued at Sabbaday Falls in Conway. The man ended up falling into the water there yesterday and was trapped by ice that was hanging over the edge. By the time first responders got to him, he’d already been in water up to his neck for roughly 45 minutes. He was able to be pulled to safety using a rope and was sent home after getting checked out by medical personnel. 

The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a reward for a man who’s wanted on attempted murder charges in New Hampshire. Officials say that 20-year-old Deandre Anglade was involved in shooting incidents that happened in Goffstown last year and in Manchester in June 2019. Up to five thousand dollars will be given to whoever provides the tip that leads to Anglade’s arrest. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 1-877-WANTED-2. 

A group of fish farmers wants to be the first to bring offshore aquaculture to the waters off New England by growing salmon and trout miles from land. The vast majority of aquaculture in the U.S. takes place in coastal waters or on land, in tanks and ponds. But federal documents say Blue Water Fisheries wants to place 40 submersible fish pens on two 250-acre sites off Newburyport, Massachusetts. The farm would be the first of its kind off the East Coast. Conservation groups say farming salmon in the marine environment is bad for wild salmon, as farmed fish can escape and compete with them for food.
