The trooper checked Beck's records and found he had two outstanding felony warrants in Illinois, one accusing him of assaulting a minor in 2010 and the other for failing to register as a convicted sex offender.

The Southeast Missourian also cited court records revealing at least three other alcohol-related driving offenses.

Beck is jailed without bond in Cape Girardeau County.
