BOSTON -- Authorities have arrested two men at the top of Massachusetts"s "Ten Most Wanted" list for failure to pay child support. The Department of Revenue says Christopher Lagos, a Plymouth construction worker who allegedly owes more than $196,000 in child support payments, was arrested in Venice, Fla., on a criminal warrant for non-support. Lagos waived extradition and will be returned to Massachusetts within the next ten days. Officials also said that Eric Grenier, a Methuen construction worker accused of failing to pay $188,733, was identified by New Hampshire officials following an assault conviction.Two construction workers whose child support arrearages combine to almost $400,000--doesn't anybody think that's a little strange?

The "Wanted" poster for all the "deadbeats" is above--one educated guy and nine blue collar workers. This isn't typical of most of these lists--usually all 10 are blue collar workers.
