CLINTON, Maine — A Clinton man was arrested after jumping on a train while trying to escape from police.
According to the Morning Sentinel, police responded to a call of a couple fighting on Bangor Road in Clinton around 3 p.m. Monday.
A woman at the house told police her boyfriend hit her while they were arguing.
A K-9 unit was able to track 32-year-old David Bowring to nearby railroad tracks where officers determined he jumped on a moving train and rode it into the center of town.
Bowring reportedly went to a friend’s house who then called police and told them his location.
Police arrested Bowring, who was taken to the Kennebec County Jail where he was later released after posting bail.
