In Gadsden County a man was found and arrested on suspicion of having beat his girlfriend and driving away in Tampa.
The Gretna Police Department and Leon County Sheriff's Office had been looking for Bradley S. Bruce since Feb. 11 when his girlfriend was discovered with multiple injuries from abuse at a Burger King near I-10.
Bruce was arrested by U.S. Marshals Monday after a search that lasted more than two weeks.
Bruce will likely face charges for aggravated battery and assault, with possible other charges as the case is investigated.
