SCRANTON, Pa. -

A Schuylkill County man who was convicted of harassing Sarah Palin has been arrested again.

Shawn Christy, 21, of McAdoo was picked up by U.S. Marshals Wednesday after walking away from a community re-entry program in Scranton.

Officials say Christy was verbally abusive to the staff and damaged the facility.

Christy was sentenced to five years probation in June after he and his father pleaded guilty to making unwanted phone calls to Palin and her lawyers.
