ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A Las Vegas man has been arrested on charges of automobile homicide and possession of a controlled substance in a Sept. 23 crash that killed his son in southern Utah.

46-year-old Brandon Arduino was booked into a Las Vegas jail after Utah authorities issued an arrest warrant for him. He remains there pending extradition to Utah.

Arduino was heading south from Cedar City, where he had appeared in court on a charge of distribution of a controlled substance, when his car veered off Interstate 15 and rolled.

His 13-year-old son, Brandon Christopher Arduino-Boggs, was not wearing a seat belt and was killed.

Arduino escaped with minor injuries.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers said they found prescription bottles of OxyContin and hydrocodone in the car.
