LAS VEGAS (AP) - A fugitive sex offender accused of skipping parole in Virginia, trying to abduct a woman in Tennessee and avoiding capture in Texas has been arrested in Las Vegas, police and U.S. Marshal Service officials said Monday.

Michael Sean Green, 40, of Martinsville, Virginia, was found early Monday at a budget motel near downtown, and he tried to flee after providing authorities with a fake name, said Richard “Brad” Sellers, chief deputy U.S. Marshal in Roanoke, Virginia.

Green was being held without bail at the Clark County jail pending a court extradition hearing and transfer in custody to Tennessee or Virginia.

Sellers called it likely that Green would be sent first to Tennessee.

Green was previously convicted in August 1994 in Stafford County, Virginia, of abduction for immoral purposes.

He was sought on warrants issued June 4 in Virginia after he allegedly cut off his parole GPS device, left the state and failed to follow his sex-offender registry requirements.

Green was sought along with Bobby Keeney of Henry County, Virginia, in the investigation of an attempted abduction of a woman as she walked to her car late June 5 in Knoxville, Tennessee, Stafford said.

Kenney was arrested Wednesday in Fort Worth, Texas, on warrants issued in Tennessee, the deputy marshal said. Green eluded authorities in Texas and made his way to Las Vegas.
