    A Maine man who led police on a 43-mile chase across eight towns on Sunday is facing numerous charges, according to state police.

    Zachary Yahn, 27, of Dixfield, is facing charges of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and eluding a police officer. More charges are expected.

    Police say the episode unfolded with a 911 call about a man with a gun at a convenience store in Dixfield. The man, later identified as Yahn, fled the scene in a vehicle.

    Mexico police spotted Yahn's car and said he led officers through eight towns from Mexico to Woodstock and then to Rumford.
