LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Army private wanted for the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old Los Angeles County girl has been arrested in Florida.

Daniel Brazelton prompted a nationwide manhunt when he escaped from military custody in Georgia on Feb. 11.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s Captain Michael Parker says Brazelton was arrested Friday night at a motel in Daytona Beach, Florida. Parker says Brazelton was not armed and was taken into custody without incident.

Brazelton escaped from Army personnel Feb. 11 in Hinesville, Georgia, as he was being returned to jail following a medical appointment.

    What does some 15 year old girl being arrested in florida have anything to do with Daniel Brazeltons alleged charges? Hopefully the public will see the truth instead of how reports are written instead of stirring untruthful rumors. Let the truth prevail. Daniel is a good guy and anyone that knows him knows this is all BS.
