He was arrested by a Douglas County deputy and a Knox County detective following a brief chase in the Wal-Mart store where he was employed. Whitley was handcuffed after falling into a clothes rack.
The former owner of a Douglasville video store looked pretty much the same, "only older," Miller said.
"We've been trying very hard to get him," the sheriff said. "It's extremely satisfying."
Whitley was returned to Douglas County on Wednesday where, as a former fugitive from justice, he faces new criminal charges. He's being held without bond, Miller said.
