Warrant issued for B.J. Wright


WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- A Columbus County judge has issued an arrest warrant for B.J. Wright, the man involved in numerous run-ins with state Sen. R.C. Soles. If caught, the judge has ordered Wright's bond set at $5 million.

In the last couple of weeks, police have arrested Wright twice for possession of cocaine and driving with a revoked license. He posted bond to get out of jail this weekend, and then missed his scheduled court appearance yesterday. That prompted the judge to issue the arrest order.

Wright was released from prison last summer, and has since been involved in a number of incidents that made headlines, including a shooting at Sen. Soles's house in August.

You knew

this guy was no rocket scientist having an open container and drugs in his car while on the Police parking lot.

Must be in hiding along with his buddy Blackburn.

$5,000,000 bail. I don't even think Dillinger had bail set that high if they allowed bail.

His Mama must be proud of him.
