A Franklin man arrested early Sunday morning for a suspected DUI was taken into custody on a warrant issued in Mercer County.

Franklin City Police say they observed a truck run a red light at Coefield Corners at about 3:15 AM Sunday, and they followed the driver to the Oak Hill apartments.

Officers tell KQW that, as they were conducting a field sobriety test on 32 year-old Lawrence Melvin, they discovered Melvin was wanted on a outstanding warrant.  Police did not specify the outstanding Mercer County charge.

Melvin was arrested, and further legal action was pending.
