A Mt. Washington man accused of being a deadbeat father was arrested Friday afternoon by Allegheny County Sheriff's deputies.
A warrant was issued in November for John Zajch, 45, who is accused of owing more than $106,000 in child support payments, Sheriff William P. Mullen said in a release.
Deputies received information that he could be found at a home on Bangor Street in Mt. Washington, Mullen said. Zajch was taken into custody without incident and lodged in the Allegheny County Jail to await a hearing Tuesday in Family Court.
A Butler County man, Michael E. Connor, 55, of Adams Township, was arrested Thursday on charges of owing $311,716 in child support. Mullen said Connor owed the most back child support of anyone since the sheriff's office began arresting those accused of being deadbeat fathers.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
