The Santa Fe Police Department for the second time this week has arrested one of the men on their “Most Wanted” list.

Police early Wednesday arrested Christian Barney, 50, on an outstanding State District Court warrant charging he never showed up for a Feb. 14 arraignment after being indicted on a charge of aggravated battery upon a peace officer and resisting, evading or obstructing a peace officer. Capt. Gerald Rivera said the original charges stem from a Sept. 3 incident in which Barney is said to have scratched, bit and cut an arresting officer.

Rivera said Barney was arrested Wednesday around 9 a.m. without incident on a Santa Fe Trails bus near Sandoval and Alameda streets. Rivera said he does not know what information came forward to alert police Barney was on the bus.

Barney, 3357 Cerrillos Road, was being held late Thursday at the Santa Fe County jail in lieu of a $20,000 cash or surety bond.
