Arrest Warrant Issued for Powerball Winner

9 August 2000

BURLINGTON, KENTUCKY –Aug. 9, 2000 –As reported by The Associated Press: "Authorities have issued a warrant for the arrest of a man who won the $65.4 million Powerball lottery jackpot last month.

"Mack Metcalf, 42, a forklift operator from Florence, did not show up in court Tuesday to face charges of drunken driving, driving without a license and leaving the scene of an accident.

"…State lottery officials were about to clear him to receive his winnings when the Kenton County attorney's office called to inform them that Metcalf had been behind on child support payments since 1986.

"A judge ordered Metcalf to pay $880,000 to a fund for future support because he already owed at least $31,000.
