Interstate Crime Enforcement deputies charged a Kentucky driver with being a fugitive from justice after a traffic stop Wednesday on Interstate 24 near Murfreesboro, a Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office supervisor said.

Driver Cornelius Baskin, 37, of Bowling Green, Ky., was wanted in Warren County Kentucky for distribution of cocaine, said ICE Lt. Chris Haynes.

“A warrant check showed him to be wanted by the U.S. Marshal’s for a federal parole violation,” Lt. Hayes said.

Baskin was arrested and charged. He was booked into Rutherford County Adult Detention Center where a hearing on the fugitive charge is set May 27 in General Sessions Court. He was released to the U.S. Marshals Service and Kentucky authorities.
