ADA, OK -- An Ada man who deputies had been searching for the past year is finally behind bars in Pontotoc County.

According to Sheriff John Christian, David Buckley was recently arrested in Los Angeles for jaywalking.

Authorities in Los Angeles discovered Buckley had an outstanding warrant in Pontotoc County.

Christian made the 38-hour drive to get Buckley himself.

Buckley was arrested back in September of 2010 for assault and battery on an Ada police officer.

He remains in the Pontotoc County Justice Center and will appear in court next month.
