A Ketchikan is in custody today after he allegedly tried to evade Alaska State Troopers by escaping in a kayak.
Vincent Morin was arrested yesterday afternoon after troopers attempted to serve an arrest warrant for outstanding charges. According to trooper reports, Morin saw the officers arrive at his location at Air Marine Harbor and fled the area in a kayak. He paddled to a private residence a short distance away, where he was arrested on the shore and taken into custody.
Morin allegedly failed to appear for a court hearing for charges of assault in the fourth degree, theft in the third degree and reckless endangerment. According to court documents, after an argument in May, Morin allegedly followed his former girlfriend to Knudson Cove Marina, attempted to enter her vehicle, held onto her car’s roof luggage rack when she tried to leave and took her phone.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges at his May arraignment. During his hearing in court today, District Court Judge Kevin Miller set Morin’s new bail at $1,000. Morin’s next court appearance is Sept. 12.
