Jack Haddon, 28, formerly of Dole Lane, had been wanted in connection with alleged offences of harassment, assault, criminal damage and coercive behaviour between June and November last year.

The self-proclaimed 'Hide and Seek Champion of Chorley' had repeatedly taunted police on social media whilst evading arrest for more than a week.

On January 9, Chorley Police made a public appeal to help locate Haddon whilst urging the 28-year-old to hand himself in.

However, Haddon continued to evade police and appeared to boast about his wanted status on social media.

But Lancashire Police has confirmed that Haddon 'had lost his crown' following his arrest in Chorley yesterday evening (January 20).
