Louisiana Fugitive Arrested In East Austin
Updated: Wednesday, November 6 2013, 03:22 PM CST
Law enforcement officials say they arrested a career criminal on the run from Louisiana in East Austin Wednesday morning.
Hector Gomez, with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, says 30-year-old Wade Jermaine Banks of Baton Rouge was arrested without incident in the 1000 block of Clayton Lane near the intersection of I-35 and Hwy 290.
Gomez says Banks fled from Baton Rouge after being charged with a battery offense which occurred in July of this year where the victim -- who had been in an abusive relationship with Banks, but was leaving him, according to the arrest affidavit -- was severely beaten, requiring hospitalization after sustaining a hairline fracture to her face.
Investigators were able to track him down to an apartment complex on Clayton Lane, Gomez says, and officers made the arrest after surveillance confirmed his location.
According to Gomez, Louisiana authorities say Banks has been arrested approximately 25 times for a variety of crimes such as battery to a police officer, burglary, first degree murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, assaults and Narcotics.
