Be careful what you ask for.
A Fawn Township man, who state police said was late updating his status as part of Megan's Law, told troopers in a mocking tone that he should be arrested for the alleged offense.
Troopers were quick to meet the request by Christopher Paul Vogel, 51, of 249 W. Woodbine Road on Thursday, charging him with failure to comply with registration requirements, according to a release from state police.
"Vogel's request was granted, and he was taken into custody without delay," the release says.
The incident happened when Vogel, a convicted sex offender, went to the Loganville barracks about 4:40 p.m. to update his status, which must be done on a quarterly basis, police said.
When a trooper pointed out that Vogel was several days late updating his status, Vogel became "agitated and argumentative" and said he should be arrested, police said. According to the state police Megan's Law database, Vogel was convicted of a third degree sex offense in 2000 out of state.
