State tells Detroit man: Pay for child that isn't yours or go to jail!

DETROIT (WXYZ) - UPDATE: Detroit man turns himself in after not paying child support for a child that is not his

Carnell Alexander is a wanted man. The reason? He refuses to pay child support for a child that is proven to not be his. As a result, a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
7 Action News told you about Carnell Alexander in October. He said he was looking for help clearing up a terrible mistake.
Alexander says he learned about the paternity case against him during a traffic stop i Detroit in the early 90s. The officer told him he is a deadbeat dad, there was a warrant out for his arrest.
“I knew I didn’t have a child, so I was kind of blown back,” said Alexander during an interview in October.
He would later learn this happened because his ex needed help caring for her kids.
“I put him down as father to get assistance,” she told 7 Action News.
She didn’t realize that would start a paternity case. The state would want to get reimbursement for welfare benefits from the child’s dad.
