ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – A man wanted for murder is off the streets after a speeding stop led to an arrest for driving under the influence on Monday.

According to the Atlanta Police Department’s High Intensity Tactical Traffic unit, Jevalo Walker was speeding down I-85 South at more than 90 miles per hour. While he was stopping the car at I-75/85 South near Williams Street, officers saw him drop several items outside the car.
