Johnson City police arrested a man Friday who was wanted on charges in Mississippi after stopping his vehicle on Winter Street because he was playing the radio too loud.

According to a Johnson City Police Department press release, officers stopped Moses Michael Dillon Jr., 30, 317 Wilson Ave., for the excessively loud radio. When asked for his ID, Wilson provided a Mississippi Identification Only card.

A records check revealed he was wanted in Mississippi for multiple felony charges, including possession for resale of marijuana, possession of a firearm and burglary of a building.

Dillon was taken to the Washington County Detention Center, where he was awaiting extradition to Mississippi. He also was charged with being a fugitive from justice and loud radio. He was being held on $25,000 bond on those charges and will be arraigned in Sessions Court on Monday at 9 a.m.
