MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - A New Hampshire man wanted on a drug warrant led officers on a chase Tuesday afternoon, Manchester police said.
An officer spoke with 41-year-old Michael Mooney of Weare after noticing him standing against a building on Manchester Street around 1:30 p.m.
Mooney initially gave the officer a false name but the officer positively identified him and learned of the active warrant through dispatch, police said.
Mooney allegedly fled the area on his bike before a second officer caught up with him and placed him in handcuffs.
He was charged with resisting arrest/detention and on the warrant from Jaffrey for possession of controlled drug.
Mooney is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
