MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a man who was arrested after spending 16 years on the run for allegedly shooting his estranged wife while she was holding their 18-month-old boy is the father of University of Alabama football signee Reuben Foster.
U.S. Marshals spokesman Scott Sides says 41-year-old Danny Foster was captured Friday in Miami.
Danny Foster was originally arrested in Randolph County, Ala. after the shooting, which the woman survived. A young Reuben was wounded in the back.
Danny Foster was indicted by a grand jury in 1996 but fled the state before being arrested in California. Sides says he was extradited to Randolph County but escaped from jail in December 1996.
Reuben Foster signed with Alabama this week.
Sides says Danny Foster took on a new identity in Miami and will again be extradited to Randolph County.
