PELHAM, N.H. — On Thursday night, 61-year-old Stephen Bailey was arrested in Londonderry, New Hampshire and charged with driving under the influence. Less than 12 hours later, he was arrested again in Pelham after allegedly crashing a car while driving under the influence.
Bailey, a Pelham resident, now faces charges in both incidents, Pelham police said in a Friday press release. He will be arraigned in Salem District Court on Jan. 7.
Londonderry police could not be reached for immediate comment Friday, but Pelham police Sgt. Glen Chase said Bailey was arrested in Londonderry around 7:45 p.m. Thursday night on a second-offense charge of driving under the influence.
At 6:25 a.m. Friday, Pelham police responded to a report of a motor vehicle rollover. Officers located a black 2011 BMW on its side in the front yard of 1066 Mammoth Road and allegedly found Bailey “sitting on the ground outside of the vehicle,” according to the Pelham police press release.
Witnesses allegedly told police they observed the vehicle weaving and traveling in the opposite lane of the traffic before the crash. An investigation found that Bailey was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the Friday morning crash as well.
Bailey was transported to Parkland Medical Center for further medical evaluation.
