COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Cleveland’s Housing Court has issued an arrest warrant for former Colorado state representative Douglas Bruce, accusing him of building and health code violations on property he owns.

Court spokesman Jerry Krakowski said Tuesday the allegations include failing to maintain the property and clean up rubbish and debris.

Krakowski said there are no plans to seek extradition, but Bruce could be arrested if he goes back to Ohio.

Bruce appeared in a Denver court on April 10 to face allegations he violated six conditions of his probation on a 2012 felony tax evasion conviction.

According to WEWS-TV, Bruce says he’s in the process of trying to resolve disputes over property taxes on several homes that he owns in Ohio.
