Wanted man arrested in Sylvester

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

A man wanted for statutory rape is behind bars thanks to a tip through crime stoppers. 

Michael Wallace is in the Dougherty County jail tonight after Sylvester police found him at a home in the 200 block of Pinson Street.

Police say he got a little physical during the arrest.

"When they attempted to arrest him he got a little physical and tried to get away. I mean he didn't fight the officer, but he was trying to get away. And he didn't want to comply with them so they ended up using a little force on him by spraying him," says Lt. Kenneth Washington, with Sylvester P.D.    

Wallace also had several outstanding Municipal Court Warrants in Albany and was wanted for forgery in Baldwin County.
