NEW LONDON, Wis. (AP) -- A convicted bigamist has been arrested in New London after failing to show up to a sentencing hearing last month.

New London Police Chief Jeffrey A. Schlueter tells the Daily Herald Media 46-year-old Tim Swinea was arrested in New London Sunday on two warrants.

A Calumet County warrant was issued for Swinea's arrest after he failed to appear for sentencing Jan. 21. He faces a felony forgery conviction related to an alleged check-kiting scheme.

Calumet County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Froehlich revoked Swinea's bond Monday until sentencing and scheduled the sentencing hearing for March 31.

The Department of Corrections also issued an arrest warrant for Swinea in November, after Swinea allegedly violated the terms of his probation relating to a felony bigamy conviction in Marathon County.
