VINTON, LA (KPLC) -

A 50-year-old Vinton man has been arrested on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Lawrence L. Gradnigo was arrested Saturday night following a traffic stop at the intersection of Eddy and Mill streets in Vinton.

"When the deputy spoke with the Gradnigo he discovered Gradnigo did not possess any form of identification, which is required by law for all registered sex offenders," Myers said Monday in a news release.

Gradnigo was also charged with driving with a suspended license.

Gradnigo, who was convicted of sexual battery in 2000, was released after posting a $3,500 bond.
