Walkway inmate arrested in Rochester
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Police say a minimum security inmate who walked away from a transitional work center in Concord has been arrested after crashing a stolen car in Rochester.
The Department of Corrections says 40-year-old Jason William Chapman didn’t show up for a 10:45 p.m. head count on Sunday and was placed on walkaway status. Rochester Police told WOKQ-FM that Chapman was arrested early Monday morning after fleeing from the scene of a crash and briefly struggling with officers in the woods.
Chapman was serving a 1½ to 5 year sentence for theft. He is now charged with drunken driving, simple assault, resisting arrest and several other charges. It was unclear Monday whether he has a lawyer.
