Former constable Mark Patton was arrested Friday and taken to the Roane County Jail.
Sheriff Jack Stockton said the arrest stemmed from a warrant out of McMinn County for failure to pay child support.
“They’re coming to get him,” Stockton said Friday of McMinn authorities.
Patton was first arrested on Dec. 30 for failure to pay child support. The mother of his daughter, McMinn resident Lynne Harris, said Patton owed more than $30,000.
