Not wearing a seat-belt cost a wanted man his freedom. DPS Officials tell NewsChannel 11 they pulled over a car in South Lubbock County Wednesday after the passenger, 27-year-old Curtis Edward Walton, was seen not wearing a seat belt.
Troopers searched the car after one became suspicious of Walton's behavior. That's when officers discovered Walton was wanted on an outstanding warrant. He was also in possession of drug paraphernalia, and what's believed to be methamphetamines.
Troopers arrested Walton. The driver of the car was cited for having drug paraphernalia, but not taken into custody.
