Fugitive caughtBy SUE WATSON
A fugitive on the lam from Shelby County, Tenn., was arrested in Marshall County last week by members of the U.S. Marshals Mid-South Fugitive Task Force, according to Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Daniel Nesbitt, 25, of 3955 Ridgedale, Memphis, Tenn., was arrested January 10 around midnight as he left Dreamland Club on Highway 178, he said.
Investigators had determined Nesbitt might be at the club, conducted surveillance, and he was arrested after a brief foot pursuit and TASER deployment, Dickerson said.
Nesbitt signed a waiver and was returned to Tennessee to face charges lodged against him.
Nesbitt was wanted by Shelby County authorities on numerous charges, including aggravated assault, aggravated robbery, evading arrest by the use of an automobile and domestic violence, Dickerson said.
Agencies assisting in the apprehension of the fugitive included the county sheriff’s department, U.S. Marshals/Northern District of Mississippi, U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force in Oxford, the Mississippi Highway Patrol and the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
Dickerson thanked the agencies for the teamwork in the arrest.
