SHAMOKIN — The Shamokin fugitive who has been taunting his chasers online was apprehended late Tuesday, according to his girlfriend.

Scott Binsack, who has become known as the YouTube fugitive and who has belittled U.S. Marshals for weeks after he failed to meet with state probation officials, was nabbed in Bath, N.Y., said Tammy Pancher, of Shamokin.

“Police called,” she said, “and I spoke with Scott. He said, ‘They got me.’”
