NOW: Waukesha County Sheriff’s Office: Jonathan Pogreba in custody after second manhunt

WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- An Eagle man who led authorities on a manhunt in June is in custody for the second time. 

Jonathan Pogreba has been on the run for the last four weeks after he was released on bail. According to the Sheriff's Department, Pogreba was arrested on outstanding warrants in  Mukwonago on December 11. Mukwonago Police arrested Pogreba at the Baymont Inn Monday morning just after 11:00 a.m.

Mukwonago Police got an anonymous tip and sent several officers to the location. While at the scene, an investigator noticed a man who matched Pogreba's description. Pogreba was arrested without incident. 

Back in June, Pogreba took off the first time after a domestic incident in the Town of Eagle over the summer. Deputies say he pointed a gun at his wife and threatened her. He was on the run for two weeks until he turned himself into the Waukesha County Courthouse. 

In October, he posted a $150,000 bail. After he was released, authorities issued an arrest warrant when they found out he had tampered with his ankle bracelet. 

A second warrant was issued when he didn't show up to court in November. 

He is currently being held at the Waukesha County jail.
