CORNISH, Maine — An alleged verbal altercation Saturday afternoon led sheriff’s deputies to arrest a man New Hampshire authorities have been seeking for more than two years.

Nicholas Davis, 34, who has no known address, apparently was involved in an argument with a woman in York County, according to Chief Deputy William King of the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Upon arriving, the deputies identified Davis and learned that he “has violent tendencies and a history of resisting arrest,” King said.

Davis provided police with a false name, exclaimed, “See you later!” and fled toward the Saco River, King said.

He only made it 50 yards before deputies captured him and took him into custody, the chief deputy said.

Davis was charged with a parole violation warrant and refusing to submit to arrest. He is being held without bail at the York County Jail pending extradition to New Hampshire.
