According to C.P.D. Officers Justin Edwards, and Sgt.

While officers were enroute to check the area of U.S. Highway 59 they located a Tan in color 1997 Mercury that fit the given description pulling in to the Walgreens Pharmacy parking lot at the corner of Washington and Houston Street. Officers stated, the driver later identified as Wyatt quickly drove in, and parked illegally in a handicap parking space. Wyatt was seen exiting his vehicle going inside of Walgreens, but Wyatt was detained by officers once inside the business. Officers immediately escorted Wyatt back out to the parking lot where his car was parked.
Officers said, they noticed through the window of Wyatt’s vehicle an unfired bullet in the front passenger seat area.
