    A Maine man, who ran off from a State Police cruiser, still in handcuffs, has been captured.

    Jason Langdon was taken into custody late Thursday by Portland Police, after getting a ride to Portland from an unsuspecting motorist.

    Langdon still had the handcuffs on, although the chain had been cut. The motorist who gave him a ride did not notice the handcuffs until he dropped Langdon off at a homeless shelter. He then called police.

    Langdon was originally arrested in Chelsea Wednesday night after the car he was driving was stopped for a traffic violation, and he gave officers a false name.

    Langdon is now in the Kennebec County Jail.
