AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A fugitive on the Texas Department of Public Safety's 10 Most Wanted sex offender list has been captured in Longview.
DPS on Wednesday announced the arrest of 57-year-old Michael Wayne Hopson, who formerly lived in Tyler.
Hopson was wanted for failure to register as a sex offender in Anderson County and for indecent exposure in Payne County, Okla.
DPS agents had searched two homeless shelters when they located Hopson around midday Tuesday at a soup kitchen. Investigators did not immediately provide further details on what led them to Hopson but say his arrest was not the result of a tip.
DPS had warned that Hopson should be considered armed and dangerous.
