Mark Paster, 45, was taken into custody without incident around 3 p.m. while parked at the Taco Bell in Sanford.
The arrest warrant was out of the York County Superior Court. Paster's arrest culminated a months-long investigation into Paster's conduct surrounding an encounter in July.

Paster was booked at the Sanford Police Department and released on personal recognizance.
