A registered sex offender who dressed up and went to a south Alabama Christmas parade filled with children has been arrested, according to the Covington County district attorney’s office.
Darrell Sean Campbell was taken into custody at a convenience store on Tuesday morning. He was booked on outstanding warrants for failure to appear in court, according to DA Walt Merrell.
“This warrant doesn’t mean he committed a new offense, but given the amount of attention he drew to himself recently, we are investigating all possible avenues,” Merrell said. “Serving him with this outstanding warrant gets him off the street though, until the Court decides how to handle the fact that he missed Court.”
The sex offender caused public outrage when he went to the Andalusia Christmas parade “dressed in an outlandish Christmas outfit, complete with lights and makeup,” Merrell said.
