in Starkville on Friday when he violated the terms of his bond by forcibly removing his ankle monitor. He was apprehended by police a couple of hours later after being spotted by Oktibbeha County deputies on Greenfield Street near Sudduth Elementary.
He was then arrested without incident and taken to the Oktibbeha County Jail.
Arnold was first charged with attempted kidnapping earlier this month, after he tried to check out a first grade student at Sudduth Elementary without the guardian's permission.
Investigators previously said Arnold has a history of violent offenses, which includes charges of assault, disorderly conduct, possession of a firearm by a felon and second degree battery in Louisiana.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Arnold on March 21 at 2 p.m.
Those convicted of attempted kidnapping in Mississippi face a minimum sentence of one year in prison and a maximum sentence of life, according to Mississippi Code 97-3-53.
