A man wanted by Claiborne Parish authorities for failure to register as a sex offender was arrested last Sunday by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office.

About 2:15 a.m., a deputy stopped a car on U. S. 80 near Louisiana Highway 3005 for improper lights. A check showed the driver, James Clinton Green, 34, of Haynesville, was wanted on a warrant accusing him of failing to register as a convicted sex offender.

After the Claiborne Parish Sheriff’s Office verified the warrant, Green was arrested and taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center where he was held pending transfer to Claiborne Parish.
