Michael Digregorio

A fugitive wanted in North Carolina was arrested in Fulton early Saturday morning after he was pulled over for traffic violations and attempted to run from police.

Fulton Police say they pulled over Michael Digregorio around 12:30 a.m. after he failed to signal a turn, and for an inadequate muffler violation. Police checked his license and found three warrants out for his arrest.

Digregorio then attempted to flee on foot but police took him into custody after a short chase.

One of the warrants says he allegedly stole a 9mm pistol, television, stove and other items with a total value of $15,000 from a home in Hoke County, North Carolina back on October 10, 2012.

Fulton Police charged him with being a fugitive from justice, obstructing governmental administration, failure to signal, and an inadequate muffler violation.

He was arraigned by Fulton City Court and sent to Oswego County Jail with no bail. He is due back in court on September 25th.

One of the warrants in North Carolina is extraditable from New York State.
