A Smithville man, wanted by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department since last week, is now in custody.

30 year old William Paul McGee was arrested Wednesday night in Warren County.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says Warren County investigators found his vehicle at an apartment complex and contacted the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff Ray says DeKalb and Warren County officers set up surveillance and closed in as McGee emerged from the apartments. He says McGee jumped in his vehicle and took off, hitting a utility pole behind the apartments, before he was stopped and placed in custody.

McGee has been charged in DeKalb County with reckless endangerment and felony evading arrest. His bond on these charges is $41,000

McGee is also wanted on other charges in at least two other counties.

Authorities believe McGee and 21 year old Josh Neal were the two men in a Jeep Cherokee that ran from county deputies on Tuesday night, September 19th which led to Officer Andy Snow losing control of his patrol car and overturning on Short Mountain Road near the DeKalb/Cannon County line.

Neal was arrested the next day.

McGee remained at large until Wednesday.
