Weatherford-Parker County Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (FAST) members arrested a Weatherford man for failing to register as a sex offender.

The charge is equivalent to a Texas felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Scarlett absconded to San Antonio, was later apprehended in Lockhart, Texas, and extradited back to Minnesota to serve eight months in jail, before returning to Texas sometime in late 2005.
