A traffic stop allowed Johnson City police on Friday to arrest a Jonesborough man wanted in Texas.
Brent W. Young, 29, 450 Sand Valley Rd, Jonesborough, was wanted on an outstanding warrant out of Bexar County, Texas. Young was a passenger in a vehicle Johnson City police stopped for running a red light, police said in a news release.
Charged with being a fugitive from justice, Young was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.
Court documents indicated Young was wanted on a DUI charge. He waived extradition to Texas, and authorities had 10 days to retrieve him.
