Man apprehended on Missouri child support warrant

A Missouri parent wanted on a child support warrant was recently arrested outside of the state.

The man had undergone a vasectomy, but the couple wanted to have children together and decided to look into having a baby artificially. They were successfully able to have two children, but once the husband filed for divorce, he claimed he should not be forced to pay the child support because they were not biologically his.
