From CBS Chicago:
Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds was arrested Monday in Atlanta on an outstanding warrant.From my post at Da Tech Guy:
Reynolds arrived in Atlanta on a flight from Johannesburg, South Africa, according to the U.S. Marshals Office.
U.S. District Judge John Darrah last month declined Reynolds' attorneys' request to delay his tax evasion trial, slated to begin May 2.
Reynolds has pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor charges accusing him of failing to file income tax returns from 2009 to 2012.
