Fugitive from Charlotte caught in Florida

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Thursday that a fugitive who had been on the run for nearly a week was captured in Florida.

Kenneth Massey, 24, has been caught by police after he allegedly cut off his electronic monitoring device last Friday somewhere near Arrowood Road. Massey had been ordered to wear the device in April, after a pretrial hearing.

He originally was arrested on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
