A 48-year-old man who was reportedly $250,000 behind in child support payments was taken into custody at a country club in Los Angeles. The man had reportedly not paid his $563 in monthly child support since 1996. Although he was taken into custody by a combination of Los Angeles police officers and U.S. Marshals, the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office had him under surveillance.
The man faces 10 counts of felony failure to support a child and could spend up to 15 years in prison if convicted. He could also face the prospect of fines and restitution in addition to the jail time. The man is expected back in Milwaukee to face the charges in September 2014. Police say that his Internet presence and success as a businessman gave him a public profile, which made it easier for them to catch up to him.
