Anthony Yeager, 28, had been wanted on a probation violation warrant from an original charge of homicide-vehicular manslaughter from which he fled Kentucky.
Yeager is also the lead suspect in an aggravated assault out of West Valley City resulting in the victim receiving stitches for a facial wound.
An officer began following the car that Yeager was a passenger in, as additional officers arrived in the area. When police pulled the car over, they were able to positively identify Yeager from a driver’s license located in his wallet.
Yeager was later booked into the Salt Lake County Jail.
