    Maine Man Charged With Eluding Police in Stolen U-Haul Again

    A Maine man has been arrested for the second time in a year on charges he led police on a chase in a stolen U-Haul truck.

    The Portland Press Herald reports a Cumberland County Sheriff's deputy tried to stop a U-Haul driven at high speeds by 41-year-old William Wyman in Standish Sunday night. Police say Wyman and the stolen truck were later found.

    Authorities say the Portland man had minor injuries and the vehicle sustained minor damage.

    Wyman faces multiple charges including theft of a motor vehicle and failure to stop for a police officer. He is being held on bail.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    He was previously charged with eluding officers and reckless conduct after police say he crashed into two vehicles last Halloween while driving a stolen U-Haul truck before he was apprehended.
