A 30-year-old who has been arrested 12 times since he turned 18 is behind bars after being captured Tuesday by U.S. Marshals. 


Lavento Shamon Fox of 1624 4th Ave. S., was arrested Tuesday afternoon on four outstanding warrants of aggravated assault with a weapon or other means to produce death. 


The warrants are a result from the latest grand jury term in Lowndes County Circuit Court, according to Lowndes County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Marc Miley. 


Fox has been arrested 12 times since 2002. The charges include kidnapping, armed robbery, burglary, possession of cocaine, domestic violence, multiple simple assault charges, intimidating a witness, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and discharging a weapon with the city limits. In May 2004, Fox was convicted of possession of cocaine in Lowndes County Circuit Court and sentenced to five years in prison. He was paroled less than three years later in April 2007. 


Fox is currently in the custody of the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.
