SAN FRANCISCO, March 27 (UPI) -- The original policeman in The Village People, Victor Willis, has been arrested in San Francisco after being on the lam since September.

Willis was captured during a routine traffic stop Sunday during which police allegedly found cocaine and drug paraphernalia, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday. Neither Willis or a woman with him had proper identification and he was later identified through fingerprints.

The writer of such songs as "YMCA" and "In the Navy" entered into a plea bargain in September on drug charges, but he never showed up for his sentencing.

He was subsequently featured on Fox TV's "America's Most Wanted."
