MONROE, OH (FOX19) - A Forest Park man is behind bars, accused of bigamy after police found out he was married to two women at the same time.

Cecil Lightfoot, 44, is charged with bigamy and falsification.

Monroe police say they received a complaint in September from a woman claiming she married Lightfoot in April 2008, then filed for a dissolution of marriage in April 2009 only to find out that he had been married again in March of 2009 to another female. The first wife claimed Lightfoot filled out the marriage license application online to avoid being detected of still being married.

Lightfoot had a previous arrest in August of 2009 after he called in a bomb threat to Burlington Coat Factory. Police say the threat revolved around him cheating on his current wife with another woman.

Lightfoot was arrested this week in Hamilton County and taken to the Warren County Jail.
