Traffic on Lower Fayetteville Road was stopped around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday as the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force arrested Daniel Harris on charges of aggravated assault related to a shooting in Atlanta.

By ALEX McRAE alex@newnan.com Members of the Newnan-Coweta Crime Suppression Unit assisted Wednesday night in the arrest of a fugitive being sought by the U.S. Marshals Service, according to Sgt. Pat Lyons of the CSU. The captured fugitive, Daniel Harris, is believed to be from Newnan, Lyons said.
Lyons said Harris was being sought by the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force on charges of aggravated assault related to a shooting in Atlanta. When it was determined that Harris was in the Newnan area, the Coweta County Sheriff's Office was contacted and officers from the CSU were asked to assist in the arrest and takedown of Harris. The arrest took place around 8:30 p.m. on Lower Fayetteville Road near the intersection of Newnan Crossing Boulevard. The arrest went smoothly, although traffic on Lower Fayetteville Road was stopped briefly while the operation took place, Lyons said. After Harris was arrested, he was returned to Atlanta for processing by the U.S. Marshals. "It went well and no one was hurt," Lyons said. "We were glad to be part of the operation."
