In April, a woman contacted deputies with Constable Mark Herman's Office to report that her husband was still married to several other women, and had never finalized any divorce. She claims she received emails from several women claiming they were all married to him. She kicked her husband out of the house.
The suspect was identified as Nathaniel D'Amato. Deputies say he has been married to a Michigan woman since 1998. He reportedly has several common-law ex-girlfriends. Deputies are investigating to determine if they were, in fact, married.
Authorities say D'Amato was arrested Monday afternoon after he showed up to the Magnolia fire station.

Constable Mark Herman says he believes that D'Amato was on the run and looking for a place to hide out when he showed up at the fire station.
