The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, joined by South Tahoe Police and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, last week arrested Gordon Golding, 56, on 43 counts of sex crimes including sexual abuse and sexual conduct with a minor.
The warrant for his arrest was issued in Maricopa County, Arizona after he removed his ankle monitor and failed to appear at a court hearing.
Deputy Marshal Quinn Pardo issued a release saying Golding, who was arrested Nov. 19, is accused of using his position as a kickboxing instructor to develop relationships with underage girls. He is charged with committing multiple sex acts with those girls.
The task force is a multi-agency group that brings together federal, state and local agencies to find and arrest dangerous fugitives.
Golding is awaiting extradition to Arizona.
