JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – During a traffic violation stop, Jonesboro police arrests a sex offender out of Georgia.  

Tuesday, police pulled over a vehicle after it failed to stop at a stop sign at Haven and Gee St. The officer took information from both the driver and the passenger.

Dispatch advised that the passenger, Brain Boose, was a sex offender out of Georgia. The driver was given a warning for the traffic violation and the officer had Boose step out of the vehicle to talk with him.

According to police, Boose did confirm he was a sex offender. When asked if he had contacted the department, he replied no and said he had 72 hours to do so and that he had been in Arkansas for one day.

The officer asked the driver how long she and Boose had been in Arkansas. She informed him that they had been in the state since Nov. 10 and Boose was arrested by JPD two weeks ago. Dispatched confirmed Boose was arrested on Nov.13.

Boose was arrested for failure to register and incorrect address on identification and taken to the Craighead County Detention Center where he waits for a bond hearing.

He was convicted in Georgia of sexual battery of a child under 16 years of age in Sept.
