Fugitive wanted for violating his supervised release arrested on traffic violation
UPDATE: The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force says James Everett McFarlin was arrested Thursday, June 14, on a traffic violation.
Further details were not immediately available.
James Everett McFarlin, 44, is wanted for violating his supervised release. McFarlin served 10 years in prison for possession with intent to distribute cocaine. He was out on probation when Manor police got a call last month about a car stopped in the middle of the road.
"When those officers arrived on scene they approached the vehicle and observed McFarlin passed out in the driver's seat behind the wheel with the vehicle still in gear and his foot on the brake pedal," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla.
Officers smelled marijuana and McFarlin tested positive for alcohol in his system. He also told officers he had cocaine on him. McFarlin has a history of these types of incidents dating back to 1992.
"He's got things such as resisting officers, as well as narcotics use, as well as driving under the influence," said Filla. "So those things that are on the criminal history are still what he's out there doing today."
U.S. Marshals believe McFarlin is still in the Central Texas area. His last address was on Misty Morning Way in Round Rock, and he's known to drive a brown Infiniti SUV with license plate JWJ 4008.
