A New Hampshire fugitive has been arrested in Bradley County, Tennessee, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
James Trott, 27, was wanted in New Hampshire on charges of felony intimidation/stalking. He is prohibited from possessing a firearm and has possible gang affiliation, the release states.
Trott was located and arrested on Tuesday, April 23, after he was found living with a relative in the Cleveland, Tennessee area. Smoky Mountains Fugitive Task Force personnel and Cleveland police officers managed to take Trott into custody without incident. He is currently being extradited back to New Hampshire to face his charges there.
After learning of his warrants, Trott had made it known that he would not go back to New Hampshire to face his charges and threatened to "shoot it out with cops" if they came to arrest him. He had also made other non-direct life-threatening comments toward police and prosecutors. He is known to be armed and dangerous, according to the release.
