GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- After 13 years on the run, an Alachua County fugitive has been caught. Deputies said an anonymous tip helped them catch the suspect. It was all recorded on dash cam video.


Deputies made announcements on their p-a system to get 40 year old Kenneth Bradshaw out of a house in Northeast Gainesville.


"We got a tip on Saturday that he was at a location on NE 9th St," said ASO Spokesperson Sgt. Chris Sims.


Bradshaw had a felony warrant for charges back in 2004, aggravated battery on an officer, resisting arrest, and running away. Sgt. Sims said, "That means he actually used a weapon or threatened force of a weapon against a law enforcement officer, not just once but twice. It's two counts."


He was also wanted for sex assault charges in Putnam County. "He's been featured from the Alachua County Sheriff's Office most wanted fugitives on our website," said Sgt. Sims.


With their dogs, deputies forced entry into the house. After being wanted for 13 years, Bradshaw is at the Alachua County Jail.


"Our assumption would be that Kenneth has been out of the area for the past several years," said Sgt. Sims. His bond is set for $100,000.
