COPY-WATCH: Dashcam video captures Princeton fugitive's arrest

PRINCETON (WVVA) - Dashcam video from a Florida Highway Patrol cruiser has captured the traffic stop that led to Princeton fugitive Brett Bowyer's arrest earlier this week.

Bowyer, a former counselor and coach at Princeton Senior High School, pleaded guilty to charges of possession of child porn in 2011 but fled before he was sentenced.

He was apprehended in Florida Wednesday morning after being pulled over by a trooper for failing to move over for a Brevard County deputy.

FHP officials said Bowyer gave the trooper a false name but was identified using a handheld fingerprint scanner, as seen in the video.

He was later featured on "America's Most Wanted."
