Pelham man shot during pursuit strikes plea deal
Grant Hebert, 22, is expected to enter guilty pleas to attempted second-degree assault and eight other charges on Sept. 4 in Rockingham County Superior Court.
The plea deal allows Hebert to avoid the prospect of going to trial on an attempted first-degree assault charge, and facing 10 to 30 years in state prison if convicted by a jury.
Hebert is accused of fleeing from Pelham police in the early morning hours of Oct. 28, and nearly striking two Windham police officers with his car after crashing into a wooden fence.
The pursuit was set off when Hebert allegedly refused to pull over for a Pelham police Officer Eugene Stahl. Hebert was driving 40 m.p.h. in a 30 m.p.h. zone., according to court records.
The pursuit wound through Pelham into Windham where Hebert's car spun out of control on Lowell Road and crashed into a wooden fence, according to court documents.
Hebert allegedly kept driving in the field and allegedly rammed the left side of the cruiser driven by Stahl then continued into an abutting property and drove through a metal gate.
Windham police officers Christopher Van Hirtum and Shane Mirisola opened fire on the car as it came at them, unleashing a combined 19 bullets, court papers say. Stahl discharged six bullets from his gun.
Hebert's car crashed into the rear of another police cruiser.
After the crash, Hebert allegedly accelerated the gas pedal and trying to flee, police said. Mirisola then fired a second volley of bullets into the car, according to investigators.
An investigation by the state Attorney General's Office concluded that Hebert's driving posed enough of a threat to justify the use of deadly force.
Prior to striking the plea deal, defense lawyer Adam Bernstein asked a judge to throw out incriminating statements his client made to police, along with blood test results and other medical information.
