LIMINGTON, Maine (AP) - Police say a man suspected to be under the influence of drugs broke into a Maine home, only to encounter a 6-foot-2-inch, 330-pound corrections officer.

The Portland Press Herald reports the break-in occurred at a Limington home Tuesday afternoon.

York County police say the 35-year-old suspect told York County Jail employee Sean Wilson he was being pursued. Sheriff William King Jr. says he was sweating, bleeding from the mouth and appeared to be in “excited delirium.”

Wilson ordered him to lie on the floor. However, King says he instead began walking toward where Wilson’s two 4-year-old children were hiding.

Wilson wrestled him to the ground and held him there until officers arrived. He was taken to a hospital for observation.

King says the man “picked the wrong house to burglarize.”
