Trooper Wing stopped at a residence in Houlton in attempt to locate a female for a bail check and while there, made contact with a male subject who had been in a vehicle in the yard and attempted to leave the vehicle quickly.  The male refused commands from Trooper Wing and grabbed Trooper Wing by the arm.  As Trooper Wing attempted to grab the male, he pulled away and attempted to run but Trooper Wing was able to catch him as he left the porch.  The male then grabbed at Trooper Wing again and tried to strike him but Trooper Wing was able to take him to the ground and place him under arrest after brief struggle.  Male later admitted to having used bath salts and a small amount of what is believed to be bath salts were found on the male.  Male was transported to ACJ charged with assault and resisting arrest.
