Man with multiple sex offender registration violations arrested outside courtroom

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A man wanted on nearly a dozen sex offender registry violations out of Florida was arrested outside of a Lancaster County courtroom Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say an attorney saw a man sitting on a chair who had an arrest warrant. The man, 45-year-old Steven Butler, had a warrant for his arrest on a sex offender violation in Nebraska.

Deputies say Butler was at the courthouse for another matter. A deputy told Butler that he would be arrested, but Butler refused to comply.

After a struggle, deputies helped arrest Butler.

After his arrest, authorities found he had 11 felony warrants out of Florida for sex offender registry violations.
