    Fairfax County Police Department

    Border police in Poland have arrested an ex-Little League coach from Fairfax County, Va.

    John Edward Hamilton is wanted for sexually abusing boys.

    Polish police arrested the 39-year-old yesterday as he was trying to cross into the Czech Republic. The bus Hamilton was traveling on was stopped at an Interpol checkpoint.

    Hamilton is accused of sexually abusing five boys between the ages of 10 and 16 in Virginia between 1992 and 2008.

    He fled to Europe after failing to appear for a scheduled court date last October.

    Hamilton is in police custody pending a court decision whether to extradite him to the U.S.
