William Arthur Sturgeon, 43, was charged on Sunday for failure to register as a sex offender.  

Sturgeon is now being held on a combined total bond of $275,000 for charges including resisting police, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, two counts of failing to register as a sex offender, one count of failing to notify the sheriff of a change of address, and failure to appear in court.

Two of the charges are from Iredell County.
