Houston police and Crime Stoppers say a suspected child predator, who was also accused of threatening to shoot any officer who tried to arrest him, has been captured. Daniel Victor Beasley, 44, was arrested without incident around 11am Friday morning by Newton County Sheriff's Office. He is now in their custody, awaiting extradition.

Beasley allegedly made the threats against law enforcement officers after he was charged in Houston with indecency with a child and a warrant was issued in March for his arrest, according to a Crime Stoppers statement. As a result, a retaliation charge against him also was filed in May.
