Man Tased, arrested on warrants

BUCKSPORT — Officers used a Taser on a man who had multiple outstanding warrants and became combative during an incident in the woods off Main Street March 29, according to Deputy Police Chief David WInchester.

Officers attempted to stop the man, but he fled on foot behind a Main Street residence.

“When he ran from the police, Officer Gerald Lowe and Officer Chris McCrillis were able to chase him and catch him,” Winchester said. “He failed to comply with the officers’ orders and was Tased.”

Jesse Davis, 29, of Boothbay Harbor was arrested on the warrants. Davis also was charged with two counts of unlawful drug possession. Davis had suboxone and Xanax in his possession, Winchester said.
