After Golf Cart Chase, Police Make Child Support Arrest

Child support payments can be a valuable source of help to a parent when it comes to providing their children with the things and the care that they need. Given this, one can imagine how utterly disheartening it would be for a parent to be subjected to a failure to pay ordered child support by an ex-spouse or an ex-partner. Talking to a knowledgeable family law attorney is something that parents who have been the victim of non-payment of child support may find helpful. Such attorneys can give such parents information about the child support enforcement process and may be able to take actions to help expedite enforcement.

There are several different actions courts and authorities can take when it comes to child support enforcement. Some such actions can lead to a delinquent parent facing jail time.

Recently, a rather dramatic arrest was made here in Arizona of a man accused of having a large child support debt.

The man in question is a 47-year-old man from San Tan Valley. According to authorities, the man owes around $25,000 in back-due child support. In relation to these allegations, a court in Maricopa County issued a warrant against the man. Then, last Thursday, police went to the man's home.

When police arrived, the man attempted to flee from them. This flee attempt took the man onto a nearby golf course. Police used a golf cart during the subsequent chase. Police eventually caught up with the man and placed him under arrest. It will be interesting to see what happens next in this case.
