Odds and ends for Aug. 31
Motorcyclist says he hit 185 mph
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police say a motorcyclist clocked at 127 mph bragged after being arrested that he had reached 185 mph during the chase.
State police say David J. Fries, 31, was spotted by a trooper on Interstate 93 in Bow at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.
The first trooper eventually ended the chase, but another trooper saw Fries crash into a guardrail after he exited Interstate 393.
Police say Fries then led officers on an hourlong foot chase in Concord before he was caught.
SWAT team raids wrong apartment
VIENNA (AP) — The drug bust was perfectly planned. Unfortunately, Austrian police broke down the wrong door.
Police official Josef Knoflach said a SWAT team used a battering ram to bust into an apartment at daybreak and surround its sleeping tenant with guns drawn was actually meaning to target the neighboring dwelling.
Knoflach said Friday that police in Klagenfurt had a hard time reading the apartment numbers because they decided to leave the hall lights off so as not to arouse suspicion.
