ANTLERS, Oklahoma– U.S. Marshals arrested Jacob Blair Scott Wednesday night in Oklahoma, the Sun Herald reported.

The report said the agency got a tip that Scott was living in a campground in Antlers, Oklahoma.

Authorities said they thought Blair could be in Colorado on Wednesday.

Scott is a military veteran who received a purple heart for injuries while deployed. Now, Scott is wanted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in Mississippi for sexual battery, touching a child for lustful purposes and exploitation of a child, authorities say.

Accusations arose when Scott’s stepdaughter became pregnant.
