A Jefferson man turned himself in Tuesday at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office in Wiscasset after fleeing from the scene of a domestic violence incident Saturday in Jefferson before Lincoln County Deputies Dwight Fowles and Mark Bridgham arrived there.

Deputy Kevin Dennison and his police dog, Duke, also went there to help locate Wayne Little, 27, of Jefferson. After following tracks that led to a road, deputies think Little was picked up by a passing driver.

The sheriff’s office posted on Facebook on Sunday that it had reason to believe Little might be armed with a handgun.

Little is charged with aggravated assault (strangulation), domestic violence criminal threatening and obstructing the report of a crime. He is being held without bail at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset pending a court appearance.
