A man wanted in Cobb County for cruelty to children, among other charges, was one of three fugitives arrested Friday by the fugitive unit of the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force.
According to the sheriff’s office, in Coweta County members of the fugitive unit and U.S. Marshals arrested Christopher Bussey, wanted by Cobb authorities on charges of aggravated assault strangulation and cruelty to children.
