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.
