The man who– along with his girlfriend– stands accused of spending $400,000 they raised for a homeless veteran was arrested Monday in New Jersey on an unrelated outstanding warrant, authorities said.

Mark D’Amico, 39, was taken into custody at his home and brought to the Burlington County Jail, the Florence Township Police Department wrote on Facebook. D’Amico was released Tuesday after posting $500 bail, WPIX-TV in New York City reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

Police confirmed the outstanding warrant was unrelated to the GoFundMe investigation.

The warrant originated from an October 2017 traffic stop, where police say he allegedly drove with a suspended license, failed to turn his license over while suspended and drove a vehicle with a broken taillight, Philadelphia news station WPVI-TV reported.

D’Amico failed to appear in court for the citation and was arrested in May 2018, the station reported. He posted bail, but again reportedly failed to go to court in July. Police said they reissued the warrant and arrested him Monday.

D’Amico and his girlfriend, Katelyn McClure, 28, are under investigation for allegedly mismanaging donations raised through GoFundMe for homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt, who used his last $20 to buy McClure gas when she was stranded on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia last year.

    So he failed to appear, they re-arrested him and released him AGAIN on $500 bail? Set the bail higher people.
