ALICIA, AR (KAIT) -- In 2008 Terry Fears of Alicia received a 72 month suspended sentence for forgery and defrauding a secured creditor.  A judge ordered him to pay $25,000 in restitution to his victims.  Lawrence County Sheriff Jody Dotson says he didn't, so on Tuesday his deputies arrested him again.

In addition to revocation of his sentence, Dotson says Fears is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.  When Fears was arrested deputies learned he also had several misdemeanor warrants out for him, as well.

Fears is being held in the Lawrence County Jail awaiting a revocation hearing.
