NCSO authorities, along with DPS, conducted a traffic stop on I-40 in the Sun Valley area. Yarborough was arrested on the warrant out of Minnesota, a parole warrant and a charge of taking the identity of another. Also arrested was the driver of the vehicle, 59-year-old Paula Ann Hooks from Georgia. She was charged with possession of dangerous drugs.
