An Old Orchard Beach man accused of bigamy was arrested Friday in Ohio after he failed to show up for his court date last week.

The Journal Tribune reports that Michael Middleton, 43, is being held in the Franklin County Jail in Ohio, where he awaits extradition.

Middleton never showed up for his arraignment on Thursday in Strafford County Superior Court in Dover, New Hampshire.

Prosecutors have accused Middleton of marrying women he met online and then vanishing after gaining control of their assets. He is accused of marrying a New Hampshire woman while being married to women in Alabama and Georgia.
