PHOENIX (AP) - A fugitive wanted by Arizona and California authorities has been handed over by Mexican authorities.

The U.S. Marshals Service announced that 31-year-old William Carl Freeman was taken into custody Friday at the Lukeville, Arizona port of entry after Mexican authorities discovered he was living under an assumed name in Puerto Penasco, Mexico.

Scottsdale police have sought Freeman since 2007 for a long list of offenses, including fleeing from a police vehicle, auto theft, and false reporting. He also is wanted by California authorities for battery, robbery, hit and run, and violating parole on underlying burglary charges.

Authorities say Freeman had been arrested several times by Mexican police for petty crimes.

It was unclear if he had been assigned an attorney.
