BRISTOL, VA (WJHL) -

Police say the man at the center of Monday night’s manhunt in Bristol, VA has been captured.

The suspect, 37-year-old Joseph Aaron Hamilton is wanted in Maryland for second-degree assault.

The Bristol Virginia Police Department says shortly after 8:00 a.m. today they received word that Hamilton was spotted near the intersection of Euclid Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue.

An officer spotted the suspect on Euclid Avenue and ordered him to stop. Hamilton ran, but the officer ran him down after a short foot chase.

Hamilton, has no physical address, but he told police he knew he was wanted and has been wandering the country to avoid being caught.

Hamilton was charged with being a fugitive from justice and is being held without bail at the Bristol Virginia Sheriff’s Office. He is expected to go in front of the judge on December 18.

Virginia State Police will not press any charges against Hamilton.

Early Tuesday morning, Virginia State Police search helicopters hovered over a section of Bristol looking for Hamilton.

Police warned people in the area to be on alert.

A trooper said he saw Hamilton walking on Interstate 81 and stopped to offer help. Hamilton turned out to be wanted for arrest. Hamilton ran from the officer – triggering the search.
