MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A man who owes $250,000 in Wisconsin child support has been arrested at an exclusive California country club.

Milwaukee County authorities on Thursday announced the arrest of Raul R. Cardona. He was nabbed last week at the Mountain Gate Country Club, a private golf course in Los Angeles.

Authorities say the 48-year-old has waived extradition and is expected to appear in Milwaukee County court within weeks.

Cardona is charged with 10 felony counts of failing to pay child support.

He'd been ordered to pay $563 per month, starting in 1994 and continuing until his daughter graduated from high school in 2011. But the criminal complaint says he only made a single payment of $424.

It wasn't immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
