Fugitive back behind bars

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
CUMMING - Forsyth County authorities Wednesday said a fugitive is back behind bars following his arrest in Gwinnett County.

According to Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Doug Rainwater, 48 year old Michael David Westbrook failed to register as a sex offender in Forsyth County.

When authorities went to his home last month, he was gone.

Rainwater said Gwinnett County Police found Westbrook last Thursday passed out along a road. He's being held in Forsyth County.

Rainwater said Westbrook's original case was out of Fulton County.
