According to DPS, Fox, who's from the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area, was wanted for trafficking of persons and compelling prostitution by force/threat. Court records show the 35-year-old also has a history of arrests for assault, robbery and drug-related crimes, plus weapons counts.

Fox was arrested last year in College Station on a charge of possession of marijuana. Investigators say he allegedly was involved with human trafficking by forcing a woman into prostitution.

He was released on bond, then failed to appear in a Central Texas courtroom in July.

Fox was added to the Texas 10 Most Wanted list in September.
