According to the Union Leader, a regional news outlet, a 41-year-old Gilmanton, New Hampshire, man was arrested and charged with "operating [a vehicle] while being a habitual offender, endangering the welfare of a minor, disobeying a police officer and theft of a motor vehicle" following an incident that occurred on Saturday, September 14.
The source states that Sean Mulcahy led law enforcement officials on a three-hour pursuit while carrying two "frightened" young children in the back seat of his vehicle. The chase began when police attempted to pull the 41-year-old over on suspicion of drunk driving at around 1 p.m. Mulcahy reportedly eluded the officers for miles until he ultimately fled his 2003 Mercury Sable and stole a parked Jeep -- leaving the 7-year-old and 9-year-old children behind.
When he noticed that law enforcement officials where nearby, Mulcahy abandoned the Jeep and took off on foot. Police were unable to apprehend him at that point, but later spotted him in another vehicle and finally arrested him at around 4:30 p.m.
