FAIRFIELD, Maine — A Fairfield man burned an officer's face with hot coffee, told the armed officer to shoot him, fled on foot through downtown Fairfield and was zapped by a TASER three times as he tried to avoid arrest Sunday, police said.
Christopher Allen Edes, 25, was arrested Sunday at 11:15 a.m. on a York County sheriff's warrant for failure to appear in court on charges of felony burglary and theft. He also faced charges of assault on an officer, refusing to submit to arrest, violating conditions of release, possession of marijuana and failure to give correct name, address or date of birth.
