A man wanted in Richmond County was arrested early Saturday after accepting a ride from a Columbia County sheriff’s deputy.
A deputy on patrol found Curt Dexter Owsley Jr., 37, carrying numerous items while walking along Washington Road near the entrance of Wildwood Park just after 1 a.m. Owsley said he was leaving Wildwood Park and walking to a home on Oak Spring Drive.
The deputy offered Owsley a ride and he accepted. On the ride, the deputy checked Owsley for outstanding warrants and discovered he was wanted in Richmond County for a probation violation.
Owsley was arrested and taken to the Columbia County Detention Center.
He was transported to a Richmond County jail, where he is being held without bond, according to jail records.
