Well that didn’t take long. According to Austin station KVUE,
Cody Wilson is back in the United States and is booked in the Harris County Jail as of 4:20 a.m. Sunday morning.
He has an active warrant out for his arrest in Travis County for felony sexual assault. This after investigators with Austin Police say he paid a 16-year-old girl for sex.
His bond is currently set for $150,000 and he has agreed to personally hire an attorney.
This comes after Wilson was arrested in Taipei, Taiwan on Friday. The US doesn’t have an extradition treaty with Taiwan.
They believe he recently fled to Taiwan after he was tipped off about the warrant by a friend of the victim.
While there, police said Wilson missed a scheduled flight back to the U.S.
“We know Mr. Wilson frequently travels for business, we don’t know why he went to Taiwan. But we do know before he left, he was informed by a friend of the victim that she had spoken to police and police were investigating him for having sex with a minor,” said Commander Troy Officer.
On Friday, he was escorted through the airport to board a flight back to Houston, Texas.
