Hudson man charged with running from police

High-speed chase ends in arrest

HUDSON – A Hudson man was arrested after he tried to escape arrest, going as fast as 100 mph before he lost control of his vehicle after a police pursuit.

Kurt Hans Holving, 43, was spotted by police on Thursday afternoon driving a 2001 Toyota 4Runner on Belknap Road. Hudson Police Officer Brian Morgan reported he knew Holving was wanted on a warrant out of Merrimack and tried to stop the car.

Holving first pulled to the right on Belknap Road and stopped, letting the passenger of his car get out. The passenger shouted to police that Holving was “insane,” Morgan’s report said.

Police said Holving took off down Belknap Road at a high rate of speed, passing several cars before getting onto Bush Hill Road.

The chase kept going as Holving turned onto Moose Hill Road, a dead end. There, Holving drove his car onto a rocky dirt trail to continue his effort to elude capture. Officers said Holving lost control of his car in a rocky, wet area on the dirt road, exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Morgan reported he was able to run Holving down.

Holving is being held on $20,000 cash bail after his arraignment Friday in Nashua district court. He is charged with reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer, resisting arrest and driving after suspension.
