CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - Officials say the man who was shot by a bail bondsman last week has been arrested.
According to Kelly O'Sullivan with the City of Chesapeake, Jason Turner was arrested late Thursday afternoon.
Turner was allegedly shot by a bail bondsman with A. Ace Bail Bond Company while he was being served a warrant for violating his probation and failing a drug test. The warrant for his arrest was issued nine days before the incident involving the bondsman on Oct. 3.
Turner was hospitalized and told WAVY.com Tuesday he was unable to turn himself in to police.
"I'm not in the health position to go and turn myself," Turner said. "I'm not physically able to go in jail."
WAVY.com asked the hospital Turner was treated in why police were not notified, but hospital officials say they only sometimes let police know when patients are released as a courtesy. There is no law mandating the hospital has to let police know if a suspect is released.
According to court records, Turner's previous charges have all been non-violent offenses, including third degree larceny and grand larceny.
