A bus driver transporting Britney Spears' tour equipment was chased by police in New Hampshire yesterday (05APR04) after he exceeded the speed limit and delayed pulling over.

The driver has further angered authorities by failing to appear in court on charges of speeding and disobeying police.

New Hampshire State police say a trooper attempted to stop the bus in Northfield because it was going 125 kilometres per hour (78 miles per hour) in a 105 kilometres per hour (65 miles per hour) zone.

Spears was not on board the bus carrying equipment for her ONYX HOTEL TOUR.
