A violent fugitive from justice was captured Tuesday morning in Westbrook following a brief foot chase, police said.

Westbrook and Portland police, members of the Maine Violent Offenders Task Force, and the Drug Enforcement Administration collaborated in the arrest of Dajuan A. Williams, 23, of Detroit, Michigan, Westbrook police Capt. Michael F. Nugent said in a news release.

Police officers who were investigating an unrelated call at the Super 8 motel recognized Williams around 9:25 a.m.

The officers and a Westbrook police dog pursued Williams on foot along Larrabee Road. Once they had him cornered, the officers used Tasers to subdue him because he resisted arrest, Nugent said.

Williams has active arrest warrants from Michigan, Vermont and Maine on multiple charges that include aggravated assault, drug trafficking, and domestic violence assault, police said.

He is being held without bail at the Cumberland County Jail on charges of being a fugitive from justice.

Nugent said additional criminal charges could be filed against Williams. His arrest followed an eight-week investigation.
