A fugitive Texas sex offender was arrested in San Antonio after failing to register. It is not surprising that he was found in San Antonio. The city is a disgusting shithole as anyone who has spent more than ten minutes there knows well.
Gregg Michael Scott, who was put on the list of 10 "Most Wanted" in Texas, was tracked down and taken into custody by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. Scott is required to register as a sex offender after having been convicted of sexual assault of a minor in the State of Florida.
Not much is known about Scott at this point. We can assume however that he is fluent in Spanish since he was found in San Antonio.
In related news, is has been reported that the number of Mexican gang members in San Antonio has risen dramatically in the last ten years. Mexican gang members now make up nearly 22% of San Antonio's entire population.
Anyway, back to the Florida pervert arrested in San Antonio story, this from The Examiner:
Only four days ago one Gregg Michael Scott was added on the list of Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders. Today he is in jail.
Scott, 52, was arrested yesterday at a home in the 6400 block of David Drive in North East San Antonio for failure to register in Texas as a sex offender.
The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force worked to secure an arrest warrant after they were contacted on January 18, 2013 by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).
DPS was looking for Scott after he failed to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
