Ryan Fogg, of Seabrook, New Hampshire, was arrested on an attempted burglary warrant on July 2. Last week, a jury indicted him for felony escape because Fogg allegedly inspired a police chase throughout most of the fateful day, The Union Leader reported.
Fogg's own grandmother caused his incarceration, when she called police twice saying that her grandson was outside trying to get into her home and "looked like he was high on drugs." The 23-year-old man fled the scene without entering the house on either occasion and sparked a police pursuit.
When police finally captured Fogg, during the arrest, he was bitten badly by a K-9 police dog and taken to Exeter Hospital for treatment.
The source reported that upon his release, Sgt. Robert Granlund left Fogg in the back seat of his police car with the windows down to "give him some air." He then reentered the hospital to return the suspect's wheelchair. Meanwhile, Fogg fled the vehicle on foot, into the woods.
The chase lasted three hours and appears to have included stops at both the suspect's grandmother's home and a neighbor's property. Soon enough, though, Fogg was securely in custody, and he is currently being held in Rockingham County jail with bail set at $100,000.
On October 11, Fogg was indicted on the charge of felony escape by a jury. He still faces the original charges, for attempted burglary and criminal threatening, in connection with the incident involving his grandmother. A court date has not been released.
