After an overnight manhunt, Maine State Police arrested Mark McLean at approximately 10 a.m. Sunday.
Maine State Police said they arrested McLean, 51, of Kittery after they received a tip of McLean walking to a family member’s residence in Lyman, Maine, according to Sgt. Steve Spofford of the York Police Department. Before being brought to York County Jail, McLean was treated for minor cuts and abrasions at a local hospital, according to Spofford.
According to Spofford, McLean was wanted after he allegedly fled the scene of an aggravated domestic violence assault at the Microtel in York on Friday night. Police said McLean is charged with aggravated domestic violence assault, a class B felony, and four misdemeanor charges, which are criminal restraint, domestic violence threatening, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and two counts of leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
According to Sgt. Brian Curtin of the York Police Department, McLean allegedly got into a physical altercation with his girlfriend at the Microtel before 9 p.m. Friday when police were called. According to Curtin, while police were interviewing the victim, the York Communications Center began receiving calls reporting a car, allegedly driven by McLean, struck another car and the guardrail on Spur Road before getting on Interstate 95 southbound. The car McLean was allegedly driving belonged to his girlfriend, according to Curtin.
According to Curtin, the car, allegedly driven by McLean, hit another car on Interstate 95, causing the car McLean was driving to veer off the highway into the gully in between the northbound and southbound lanes just south of the York River bridge. Police said McLean fled on foot and evaded authorities for the rest of Friday night and into Saturday.
Spofford said the crash on 95 caused one motorist to be taken to the hospital for minor injuries. He said McLean is expected to be arraigned on Monday in Springvale District Court in what is likely to be a televised arraignment from York County Jail.
