ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The 37-year-old Bush was surrounded and captured by the GSP, ADDU, U.S. Marshals, DCP, and Parole officers, Wednesday. 

On September 13, the convicted felon led the GSP on a high speed chase and they issued a warrant for him.

The Albany Police Department's Criminal Investigations Bureau was already looking for Bush, after an altercation where he fought with Natasha Monique White, who APD says is his ex-girlfriend.

White was injured and she, her children and her sister, Tonya White, where all threatened by Bush. He faces charges of: Terroristic Threats and Acts, Battery, and Theft by Taking.
