GRANVILLE, N.Y. — A fugitive from Indiana who was showcased on”Tiger King” was arrested in New York after flaunting photographs of exotic animals in his refuge to a person who reported officials said.
The individual to whom Stark revealed the photographs conducted some online research on him and found he had warrants for his arrest, Granville Sgt. Ryan Pedone said.
An attorney who might talk for Stark couldn’t be found. An article on the Facebook page to the refuge that he set, Wildlife in Need, stated there’s not any evidence to support the allegations.
The Netflix series”Tiger King” follows the Life Span of Joe Exotic, of that G.W. Zoo in Oklahoma along with other lovers of exotic creatures.
Stark lost his permit together with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in June after officials said he abandoned creatures without sufficient care, water, or food, WHAS-TV reported.
Chief Deputy Scottie Maples, of the Clark County Sheriff’s Department at Indiana, said Stark transferred two dozen creatures from his refuge before police could shoot them. Stark can be accused of threatening and catching a public official through a review of his house.
Stark expects extradition event at Washington County prison in New York until he faces battery and contempt prices in Indiana.
Police say that Stark advised them that the contempt charge was caused by him swearing at a judge in a hearing. He explained that the intimidation and battery cost is for poking a neighborhood prosecutor in the torso in a search of the house.
