Manuel Soto of 52 Highland Ave. was arraigned in Rockingham Superior Court April 25 where he pleaded not guilty to New Hampshire charges of reckless conduct after leading police on a wild chase Tuesday night.

The 20-year-old is being held without bail pending extradition to Massachusetts to answer to charges of assault with intent to murder.

As previously reported by WHAV, Soto was arrested Tuesday in Windham, N.H. after leading police in two states on a wild chase that began with shots fired in the acre neighborhood in Haverhill, Mass. and ended when the 2002 Mazda Soto was driving crashed in Windham.

No injuries were reported as a result of the gunfire or subsequent high-speed chase.
