Kayak Used in Criminal Getaway

A Maine man suspected in an assault in the town of West Gardiner managed to elude police by commandeering a kayak and paddling away, according to this article in the Portland Press Herald. Police then sought assistance by radioing some game wardens who were in a boat nearby. When the wardens approached the suspect mid-lake, he did a wet exit and managed to escape by swimming away! No word on what sort of boat the game wardens were using, but it was evidently slower than a swimming man.
