On November 25, 2016, while running radar during a speed enforcement grant provided by the NH Highway Safety Agency, Washington Police Lt. Steven Marshall stopped a vehicle for travelling nearly 3 times the posted 35 mph speed limit.
Lt. Marshall was running stationary radar on Lempster Mountain. Rd. at 3:59 pm when he observed a Honda Pilot coming toward him reaching a maximum speed of 94 mph. He pulled out after the vehicle, which slowed drastically upon passing the cruiser, and stopped the vehicle in Washington Village. The operator, Keagan Manning-Hardy, age 25, of Washington stated that he had been involved in a road rage type incident with another vehicle and was trying to get distance from that vehicle.
Manning-Hardy was issued a summons to appear in the 5th Circuit Court-Newport in January, 2017 to answer a charge of Negligent Driving.
