DUNWOODY, Ga. — Police arrested a wanted man Sept. 18 after he was pulled over on Chamblee Dunwoody Road near Cotillion Drive.

While police were patrolling the area that morning, an officer saw a car with an expired registration sticker. Police ran the vehicle information through their system. The tag came back valid, but they were alerted that the owner had a warrant from Atlanta for failure to appear. 

Officers stopped the driver and confirmed that he had an active warrant. 

The man, 30-year-old John Scales of Atlanta, was arrested without incident on warrant.
