BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Early Wednesday morning, Fugitive Nathaniel Thompson, this week’s “Wheel of Fugitive” contestant was arrested by Palm Bay Police during a traffic stop on a vehicle that was driving erratically.

Thompson, who was a passenger in the vehicle subsequently told an Agent from our Fugitive Unit that his girlfriend had made him aware that he was listed on Wheel of Fugitive.

Thompson told Agents that he was actually headed to the jail to turn himself in when the traffic stop occurred.

Since the person Thompson was riding with was not a very safe driver our Fugitive Agent decided to give him a ride to jail in one of our cars so that he could arrive safely to properly turn himself in.

Great job by our partners at the Palm Bay Police Department in getting Thompson off our streets and into a nice safe jail cell.

I can’t wait for next Tuesday when it will be time to once again play “Wheel of Fugitive”.
