Updated 1 year ago

A Windham man is facing charges after police say he fled a traffic stop and led officers on a high-speed chase that reached speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. Police say it started at about 10:30 p.m. Monday when police tried to pull over a car for having a rear plate light out. The car instead sped away. The car eventually got boxed in on a dead end, and the driver ran into the woods. Police using dogs eventually flushed the man out of the woods and arrested him at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. The man, identified as 33-year-old Matthew Higgins, was charged with eluding an officer, criminal speeding and driving to endanger. He is being held without bail at the Cumberland County jail.
