Evangelist Alamo agrees to return to Arkansas

Associated Press/September 26, 2008

Flagstaff, Arizona - Evangelist and convicted tax evader Tony Alamo will be extradited to Arkansas from Arizona after his arrest on charges he took minors across state lines for sexual purposes.

Alamo appeared briefly in U.S. District Court Friday and waived his right to fight extradition.

U.S. marshals say they will transport him as soon as possible, although exactly when isn't known.

The one-time rock promoter and street preacher was arrested by the FBI while leaving a Flagstaff hotel Thursday on charges of violating the Mann Act, usually used in interstate prostitution cases.

Federal prosecutors sought Alamo's arrest after interviewing six girls taken into state custody during a raid of his southwestern Arkansas compound on Saturday.
