A Biddeford man convicted of sexually abusing a minor was arrested Friday for failing to register as a sex offender after he tried to flee from a police sergeant and later tried to kick out the windows of a police cruiser, according to Maine State Police.

State police Sgt. Jeremy Forbes observed Clifford Mason, 30, “staggering down Jefferson (Street)” in Biddeford with an open bottle of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey in his hand Friday afternoon, state police said Saturday via Instagram.

Mason was being sought on a nationwide extraditable warrant for failing to register as a sex offender following a conviction for sexual abuse of a minor, according to state police.

When Forbes confronted Mason, he fled on foot and hid behind a trash dumpster on Elm Street, state police said. Forbes caught up with Mason and arrested him. When he was placed in the cruiser, Mason allegedly tried to kick out the windows and had to be further restrained for transport to York County Jail.

Mason was booked on charges of failing to register as a sex offender, refusing to submit to arrest or detention, violating a condition of his release and disorderly conduct. His bail was set at $1,250, state police said.
