NC man wanted after not showing up for court arrested in FL

BREVARD, NC (FOX Carolina) -

A western North Carolina man who did not show up in court in connection with a fatal crash case was arrested in Central Florida.

Transylvania County Sheriff David Mahoney said Scott McCombs, 37, was arrested in Orlando, FL.

McCombs was wanted since late December when he did not appear in court on several charges, including misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and felony hit-and-run.

Deputies said McCombs is accused of hitting and killing 58-year-old Jerry Morgan, of Brevard, in a December 2012 crash then fleeing the scene.

When he did not show up for his court date, deputies said he was wanted for failure to appear.

Orange County online jail records show McCombs was arrested on Tuesday by Orlando police on a fugitive charge along with breaking and or entering, felony larceny and failure to yield right of way.

Mahoney said he does not know how long it will take to extradite McCombs back to Brevard because he faces charges in Orlando too.
