Man in Undies Jumps in River to Elude Cops

First, police tried to arrest a man, then they had to rescue him from drowning. Police say they got a call around 6:15 a.m., Friday, that a man in his underwear was trying to get into a house and a business.

Officers found James McMillan, 24, of Sanford, Maine, and were trying to arrest him when he jumped into the Cocheco River, police said.

McMillan went under several times before floating to an embankment next to a dam. Officers reached down from the dam wall and pulled him from the water.

He was treated for possible hypothermia and faces charges including trespassing, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
