Florida man back in jail for failing to pay child support

A Florida man is back in jail for failing to pay child support. The man, 46, lives with his mother in the Village of Tall Trees. He is back in jail after voluntarily calling the Sumter County Sheriff's office to inform them of an arrest warrant he was issued for overdue child support.

The man called sheriff's deputies around 8 p.m., on Feb. 28 to inform them that a writ of bodily attachment had been issued out of Marion County. Deputies responded to his mother's home on Oak Bend Place and took him into custody. He was booked into the Sumter County Detention Center.

Documents from the man's court file in Marion County show that his child support issues date all the way back to 2010. The overdue child support is not the only legal issue that the man has faced of late.

He was arrested last year outside a Chick-Fil-A drive through at 2:30 in the morning while driving a golf cart. A police officer who observed him in the drive through found marijuana in the golf cart, which led to the arrest. That was not the only time he got in trouble with the golf cart either. In June of 2015 the man was cited for operating the golf cart with marijuana, open beer and drug paraphernalia in it.

The man was already serving probation in June of 2015 for breaking into a neighbor's garage and stealing his truck.

No other information was released by police regarding the arrest of the man on overdue child support.

Under Florida law, the man could also face the suspension of his driver's license, a fine, the seizure of his bank accounts, the seizure of his tax refund and the potential for more jail time. The punishment could be stricter if it is found the man willfully failed to pay the child support owed.
