A Bowling Green man was arrested Tuesday in Simpson County after police found he was driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen.
The Simpson County Sheriff's Office said a 2014 Chevrolet Equinox traveling east on Scottsville Road was stopped by a deputy after the vehicle failed to dim its headlights while passing the deputy's cruiser.
