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.
