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

Police said 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 from police. 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 and abandoned it when he got it stuck in woods. Shots were fired but no one was hurt.

Reardon was eventually found back in his home.
