ALTON — A man with outstanding warrants was captured after leading a Maine State Police trooper on a foot chase through the woods.

Police say 24-year-old Arthur Lloyd, of LaGrange, was charged with eluding an office after the incident Thursday in Alton.

Trooper Chris Hashey says he came upon Lloyd after the car he was in broke down on Route 16. Lloyd gave a fake name, and when Hashey realized it was fake, Lloyd took off.

A second trooper and his police helped find Lloyd, who was charged for eluding and charged on outstanding warrants for burglary and two counts of theft.

Hashey tells the Bangor Daily News that the woman wasn’t charged.
