El Dorado police arrested a man Tuesday night who is wanted in connection with a February homicide in Oklahoma City.

According to police, officers conducted a traffic stop at 11 p.m. Tuesday in the 5500 block of North Smith Street. The vehicle had a fictitious license plate and fictitious tab on the plate, and the driver identified himself as Wali Abdul Qadar, adding that his American name was Wallace McCoy.

When a nationwide data search returned no one matching either name with the date of birth provided, he was arrested on suspicion of obstructing government operations. The police then found drug paraphernalia and K2 upon a search.

While being held at the Union County Jail, the man began to have medical issues, apparently after consuming some sort of narcotics prior to the traffic stop, according to police. He was taken to the Medical Center of South Arkansas, where he was still being treated Wednesday morning.

His fingerprints identified him as Cheo McCoy, wanted in Oklahoma City in connection with a February homicide. According to police, authorities in Oklahoma City have been notified and McCoy will be extradited at a later date.
