Fugitive Caught

The man who overpowered a sheriff's deputy near Jessup was caught hiding at his brother's house near Richmond, the Sun reports.

The U.S. Marshals tactical team, which had about 18 members, cleared the house and searched it three times before noticing something odd about the wall and finding Devin Champagne hiding in the false panel, Fitzgerald said. Champagne put up a brief struggle but was quickly subdued, Fitzgerald said. He was being held Friday at the Chesterfield County Jail, where he had a pre-trial hearing in a local court, Fitzgerald said. Bryan Champagne had not been charged as of Friday afternoon, Fitzgerald said.
