N. Idaho Man Fleeing Trial Caught with Woman’s Wig
GENESEE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho man who fled during his drug trafficking trial was arrested near Genesee this week driving a rental car and wearing a woman’s wig. The Idaho State Police arrested 41-year-old Brian N. Pratt of Lewiston on Monday afternoon after receiving a tip.
ISP Capt. Lonnie Richardson says Pratt was pulled over at around 4:30 p.m. on U.S. Highway 95 while traveling north toward Moscow. Pratt was convicted on March 20 of two counts of delivery of methamphetamine and one count of trafficking.
He attended the first day of his trial, but did not appear on the second. Court records say Pratt sold meth to a confidential informant in 2012. Officers with a search warrant found nearly a pound of meth in a coat pocket at a shop in Lewiston.
