MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich – Federal authorities say a fugitive recently featured on West Michigan’s Most Wanted was arrested on Thursday in Muskegon Heights after he was caught in a cab following a car crash.

It was a concerned citizen who flagged down an uniformed Muskegon Heights officer after seeing Dequan Davis, 19, hop in a cab after a vehicle he was in crashed into another vehicle.  The Muskegon Heights officer was able to catch up to the cab and take Davis into custody.

Details on the crash itself, including whether or not Davis or anyone else was hurt, was not immediately available.

Davis was lodged at the Muskegon County jail and will appear in court on Friday.  He’s currently being held on a $25,000 bond on his initial warrant for assault with a dangerous weapon which was issued in March 2015.

Prosecutors will determine if Davis will face additional charges for leaving the scene of an accident following Thursday’s arrest.
