Fugitive Investigators Arrest Man Who Owes More than $261,000 in Child Support Payments


Lexington County Sheriff’s Department fugitive investigators on Monday, January 21 transported a 66-year-old man from Fayette County, Ala., to Lexington County, where the man faces charges in connection with his failure to make court-ordered child support payments totaling more than $261,000 in Lexington County.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said child support payments owed by Wayman Earl “Butch” Wilson, 66, of 326 11th Street SW, Fayette, Ala., are one of the largest child support arrearages that fugitive investigators have ever investigated in Lexington County. Wilson had been wanted for more than 10 years for repeatedly failing to make court-ordered child support payments in Lexington County.

Wilson was being held on Tuesday, January 22 at the Lexington County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond, Metts said.

Fugitive investigators obtained a criminal arrest warrant for Wilson on January 10 on a charge of failing to provide financial support for a child, Metts said. The arrest warrant alleges that since July 1, 2002 Wilson failed to make court-ordered child support payments totaling $261,313 in Lexington County even though Wilson was an able-bodied person who was capable of earning a livelihood.

Fugitive investigators determined that Wilson was living in Fayette, Ala., and contacted the Fayette County (Ala.) Sheriff’s Office, Metts said.

Fayette County sheriff’s deputies arrested Wilson in Fayette, Ala., after confirming that Wilson was wanted by the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department on the arrest warrant for failing to provide financial support for a child, Metts said. Wilson was booked at the Fayette County (Ala.) Jail, where Lexington County sheriff’s fugitive investigators picked up Wilson and transported Wilson to Lexington County, where Wilson was booked at the Lexington County Detention Center at 9:13 p.m. on Monday.
