Motorcycle ride ends with Kentucky sex offender's arrest in Harlingen

Gonzalez showed the officer a Texas driver TMs license but a routine background check revealed he was wanted in Christian County, Kentucky.

The 59-year-old man remains locked up in the Cameron County Jail where he TMs awaiting extradition back to the Bluegrass State.
