APD: ‘Most Wanted’ man arrested after citizen reports his bad driving

A man who was on the Atlanta Police Department’s “Most Wanted” list was arrested after a citizen reported his bad driving, police say.  

An officer was patrolling the Howell Mill Road corridor on Oct. 17 when the citizen “flagged him down” regarding a gray Jeep driving recklessly in the area, according to an arrest summary. 

The officer found a car matching that description and initiated a traffic stop, but the driver allegedly ran into a construction site and then a wooded area.
