FIRST ON 3: B.J. Wright back in jail


WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- B.J. Wright is back in jail tonight. He's one of the young men who was involved in the shooting at state Sen. R.C. Soles's house back in August.

In the last two weeks, Wright has been arrested twice for possession of cocaine and driving with a revoked license. He bonded out of jail both times, and then missed his first appearance in court on Monday. That prompted the judge to put out an order for Wright's arrest.

Sources tell us officers arrested Wright at his mother's house in Whiteville. This time, Wright will be under a $5 million bond.

he's the other party who made a stalking attack on Senator Soles' home which led to the shooting of Blackburn.

So when Blackburn's personal injury lawsuit comes to trial, Wright would be the lead witness as to what happened.

Sure is doing a lot for his credibility as a witness. Continues following the Senator around town; confronts him in the Police Department parking lot.

Oh yes, he's quite a potential witness.
