Londonderry man leads police on chase while driving naked

Saturday June 22, 2013


-- A Londonderry man was cited for DUI #3, gross and negligent operation, attempting to elude and leaving the scene of a property damage accident for an incident on Wednesday, June 19.

According to Wilmington Police, Sean M. Brosnan, 27, was driving north in a 1995 Green Chevy Suburban on Route 100 in the area of Coldbrook Road, where he was seen operating erratically. Police tried to stop Brosnan but by using emergency blue lights and sirens but Brosnan refused to stop for officers and a pursuit ensued continuing on Route 100 toward the Wilmington village.

Brosnan refused to stop on Castle Hill Road, where he smashed through a private security gate before turning around and continuing across the lawn of a private residence. Officers from the Dover Police Department attempted to stop Brosnan by using tire deflation equipment in the area of Shafter Street but Brosnan avoided it by steering around the equipment through a drainage ditch. He then traveled west on Shafter Street to the dead end and reversed his direction avoiding the pursuing officers by again driving across a private lawn and causing damage.

Brosnan then continued to operate traveling on Route 100 at speeds of approximately 40 to 45 mile per hour. The vehicle suffered a rear tire failure, which officers believe was the result of Brosnan driving through the drainage ditch. Brosnan continued on Dover Hill Road in Dover, where he crashed the vehicle and fled on foot. He went to a private residence, where the owner called 911 reporting a naked man knocking on her door. When officers arrived, Brosnan was identified and found to be naked.

Brosnan was taken into custody and later transported by ambulance Grace Cottage Hospital, where he was treated and released. He was brought to the Wilmington Police Department, where he was processed. He was ordered held at the Springfield Correctional Facility in lieu of $5,000 bail.
