Believe it or not, the man pictured to our right is accused of committing a crime.

Specifically, the Yuma County Sheriff's Office says Dylan Escalanti allegedly beat a woman with a frying pan.

The woman's skull, neck, and hand were all fractured during the domestic-violence incident, and was on the run for about a day.

He turned himself in to the Sheriff's Office last night.

YCSO says Escalanti was booked on charges of attempted homicide, unlawful imprisonment, and aggravated assault.

An Arizona Department of Corrections database also confirmed our suspicions that this guy's been to prison before.

Escalanti's prison term was for a marijuana charge, although he's been to court on plenty of occasions for charges like false reporting to law enforcement, possessing drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, shoplifting, criminal trespassing, and others.
