Summerville -- A 22-year-old Berkeley County man described as Berkeley County's most-wanted fugitive was apprehended Thursday.
Michael D. Smith Jr., also known as "Rambo," of Slam Dunk Lane, was picked up off U.S. Highway 78 near Diana Court. He is charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, receiving stolen goods, threatening the life of a public official, two drug-possession charges, three counts of unlawful carrying of a pistol and one count of unlawful possession of a pistol. He was being held in the Hill-Finklea Detention Center pending a bond hearing.
Smith is suspected of firing a handgun during an argument with a 25-year-old man at a house on Leisure Drive in February and of assaulting several other people in separate incidents dating back to 2008. He also is accused of having threatened a deputy after a bond hearing in 2008.
Agents from the U.S. Marshals Service, the Charleston and North Charleston police departments, the Charleston County Sheriff's Office and the State Law Enforcement Division began working with Berkeley County deputies to locate Smith about a month ago. Summerville police also assisted in the arrest.
