A Texas firefighter was arrested for allegedly having multiple wives, including one in Michigan.

Deputies said Nathaniel D'Amato married a Michigan woman in 1998. Houston police said D’Amato left Michigan and his wife behind without getting a divorce.

Earlier this year a woman contacted a constable's office saying her husband, D'Amato, had numerous wives.

“Investigating deputies were able to obtain marriage and divorce records showing that D’Amato was still legally married to another female complainant in another State,” the Harris County Constable Precinct 4 said in a press release.

The woman claimed she received many e-mails from other women who said D'Amato was their husband. His wife in Michigan eventually flew to Texas to provide proof that she was still married to D’Amato.

He was charged with bigamy and taken into custody Monday.

Bigamy is a second-degree felony and D'Amato could face decades in prison if convicted.
