Late last year we told you about Victor Willis, the original policeman from the Village People. Last December the cops were looking for Willis on cocaine and weapons violations.

Three months later, the search is over. The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
South San Francisco police ... said today that Willis had been arrested after the car in which he and a woman were driving was stopped Sunday by Officer Ivan Delacruz on the 700 block of Airport Boulevard. Neither Willis nor the woman had proper identification, and both had cocaine and drug paraphernalia, police said.

The man didn't give his name, but was later identified as Willis through fingerprints, police said.

Willis co-wrote such hits as "YMCA" and "In the Navy" in the 1970s. He entered a plea bargain on the cocaine-possession and other charges in early September that would have resulted in a prison term of no more than 16 months, but he never showed up for sentencing and has been wanted ever since.

Willis' case has received national attention from the television show "America's Most Wanted," which did a story on him.
Young man, you can make real your dreams/but you've got to know this one thing.
