A Gorham man with a history of escaping from authorities has eluded police again this week, this time jumping out of a moving vehicle and fleeing officers in the Somerset County town of Caratunk, police said.

Corey W. Paradise, 45, jumped, barefoot, out a window to escape capture on Aug. 4 in York, led Scarborough police on a bizarre car chase in 2014 that involved both high and low speeds, and on Monday jumped out of a moving vehicle and fled on foot.

Law enforcement agencies from across Maine have been trying to arrest Paradise since he eluded York police officers by running into a building that was under construction and jumping out a window before fleeing barefoot in the midst of a thunderstorm.

The York officers had attempted to use a Taser on Paradise, but the electrodes became disconnected when he leaped out the window, according to York police.

In August 2014, Scarborough police tried to pull Paradise over on the Maine Turnpike because he had a headlight out. He got off at Exit 53 in West Falmouth and then led officers on a low speed chase that took him into the Woodfords neighborhood of Portland at speeds police estimated to be around 18 mph. Paradise ditched the car and hid under a porch before he was arrested following a scuffle.

This week, Paradise had another encounter with the law. A deputy with the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office attempted to pull over a vehicle driven by Paradise on Monday on Route 201 in Moscow, according to a Facebook post by the sheriff’s office Thursday.

When he refused to stop, the deputy followed him to Main Street in Caratunk, where he jumped out of the car and fled on foot, the post said.

The sheriff’s office said Paradise was spotted walking south Tuesday morning on Carry Pond Road north of Pleasant Ridge Plantation. He was last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt, tan shorts and camouflage Crocs.

Paradise is the subject of multiple outstanding arrest warrants and is wanted by Somerset County on multiple charges stemming from a burglary.

Paradise has a long criminal history in Maine that dates back to 1992, when he was convicted of criminal threatening and possession of a firearm by a felon, according to records provided by the Maine State Bureau of Identification.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call the Somerset County Regional Communications Center at 474-6386.
