SOUTH HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man who was the subject of a four-hour manhunt after he was accused of ramming a vehicle into police cruisers is facing nine charges.

Police say 44-year-old Anthony Reardon, who was hospitalized Wednesday with non-life-threatening injuries, is accused of theft, criminal mischief and attempted assault on police.

Police say Reardon called 911 at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday saying he was distraught and needed help. When police arrived they found him in his driveway with weapons that he refused to surrender.

They said Reardon then tried to get away in an unoccupied Kensington police car, rammed it into two police cars before abandoning it in the woods. Shots were fired but no one was hurt.

Reardon was eventually found back in his home.
