UPDATE (8/8/17) -- An anonymous tip led Jefferson County authorities to arrest a wanted fugitive.

Just five hours after the sheriff's office posted a wanted bulletin for 28-year-old Darius Bryant, wanted for an active 'order to incarcerate,' he was spotted Monday evening and arrested at a poultry plant in the county.

His arrest stemmed from failing to appear for trial in connection to a 2014 case that left one man dead and two others injured in a verbal argument that turned physical.

He was also taken into custody for active warrants out of Arkansas County for failure to appear for traffic violations, drinking in public and obstruction of governmental operations.

During his arrest at the poultry plant, deputies also spotted Charles Alsup II, 24, who was wanted during the county's "Operation Fireworks"round-up on July 4. He was taken into custody and is being held in lieu of a $1,316.75 bond.
