Police say a New Hampshire man was driving at more than 125 mph just before he was arrested on Interstate 684 in Bedford Friday.
Stephen Miles, 23, of Derry, NH, is facing a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Troopers from the Somers barracks of the New York State Police stopped him on his motorcycle around 10:30 p.m. Friday.
"He was traveling 128 mph in a 65 mph zone," officials said in a statement. "Further investigation revealed Miles was in possession of a Ruger 9MM handgun."
The defendant was released on $10,000 bail following an arraignment in Town of Bedford Justice Court. He's due to appear again Thursday.
