CUSHING, Maine — A 28-year-old Warren man was in jail Monday after allegedly crashing his car, running from police, wading into a river and then being dragged by the hair into a boat to save him from drowning.

Justin McLellan has been charged with operating while under the influence, failure to report an accident, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and operating after suspension. He remained at the Knox County Jail on a probation hold after Sunday's incident.
