A Fort Campbell, Ky., soldier was picked up in Union City Monday on a warrant for Army desertion.
Joshua Michael Wilson, 26, whose address was listed as the Army base at Fort Campbell, was arrested at 9:30 a.m. Monday in the 1400 block of Old Rives Road, according to a Union City Police Department report.
A police patrol officer was called by a police investigator to the area of Old Rives Road in reference to a man allegedly acting suspicious. The officer spoke with Wilson, who indicated he had been left at the Magnum Inn by his girlfriend and he was in the area waiting for a ride.
The officer reported he ran a warrant check and determined there was a felony Army desertion warrant, with no bond, on Wilson. It was confirmed through Fort Campbell and authorities at the military post indicated they would extradite him, according to the report.
Wilson was transported to the Obion County Law Enforcement Complex.
