A Lake County man wanted on a felony child rape charge was arrested Friday night in Fulton County, Ky.
David Bradley Hopper, 30, of Tiptonville was arrested after the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department was contacted by the Lake County Sheriff’s Department, according to a news release from the Fulton County sheriff’s office.
Fulton County authorities were contacted about 9 p.m. by Lake County authorites in reference to a suspect with a pending felony child rape charge allegedly being at a residence in Fulton County. Deputies responded to the home in the south end of the county on State Route 2134, where they located the suspect and took him into custody without incident.
Hopper was transported to the Fulton County Detention Center in Hickman, Ky.
The Kentucky charge against Hopper is for fugitive from another state.
Hopper is being held on a $50,000 cash bond and was set to appear before Fulton County District Judge Hunter Whitesell this morning. Once a waiver of extradition is obtained, he will be transported back to Tennessee to face the charge of rape of a child (12 years old), the sheriff’s department reported.
