Bisbee, AZ -- Arizona law enforcement have arrested a Bartlesville man on a warrant out of Oklahoma.

Forty-one-year-old Marsden Elias was picked up at a home in a small community south of Tucson this week.

Elias' warrants are for probation violations concerning his 2006 conviction in Oklahoma for child abuse.

Elias served time in prison for the conviction out of Washington County.

Elias remains booked in the Cochise County Jail on charges of flight to avoid prosecution.

He is awaiting a court hearing on extradition back to Oklahoma.
