Officials in Mohave County, Arizona have every capability of arresting Dale Barlow, the 50-year-old man who is alleged to have beaten, choked and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl after their "spiritual marriage."
It's that girl's phone call to authorities in Texas, and an arrest warrant for Barlow, that sparked the raid on the compound of the polygamist FLDS sect in west Texas last Thursday.
Law enforcement officials say Barlow is here in Arizona, and they could arrest him if Texas asks them to. But they tell us they have NOT received an arrest warrant.
So the obvious question is why?
