New Jersey fugitive captured in Georgia
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man who failed to appear for sentencing for aggravated assault on a police officer has been captured in Georgia.
Federal agents on Wednesday tracked 27-year-old Donnell Cook of Newark to a residence in Lithonia, Georgia.
Cook did not show up at the Middlesex County Court House in September for sentencing. He had pleaded guilty to aggravated assault of a police officer stemming from a vehicle pursuit in which the officer was dragged by the vehicle.
Cook is being held at the Dekalb County Detention Facility in Georgia awaiting extradition to New Jersey.
