MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A former Memphis police officer accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend on two other occasions has been arrested again.

Media outlets report 28-year-old Joshua Barnes was booked into jail Sunday for the third time this year. According to court documents, he is being charged as a fugitive from justice out of Mississippi.

The documents say an active warrant was issued last week in Southaven, Mississippi for Barnes for stalking his ex-girlfriend.

Barnes has been arrested twice before for stalking. He was first arrested on Jan. 13 after he was accused of placing a tracking device underneath his ex-girlfriend’s car. At that time, he was an officer with the Memphis Police Department.

He was arrested again on Feb. 16 for vandalism and violation of a restraining order.
