WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A Florida fugitive's 7-year flight from justice ended rather unspectacularly in West Columbia, according to the Lexington County Sheriff's Department.
Jose Antonio Gonzalez was living under a completely different identity -- Hector Acosta in this case -- when SLED agents and sheriff's deputies arrested him along Bush River Road on Monday night.
According to the sheriff's department, Gonzalez was apprehended thanks to a Crimestoppers tip.
Sheriff's investigators say Gonzalez had violated the terms of his parole in Florida.
Gonzalez now sits in the Lexington County Detention Center awaiting extradition to Florida.
