Arrest warrant for cadillac ranch creator

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) -- An arrest warrant has been issued for Amarillo millionaire and eccentric artist Stanley Marsh 3, accusing him of 11 felony counts of child molestation.

Special prosecutor Matt Powell said Wednesday that Marsh faces six counts of child sexual assault and five counts of sexual performance by a child that involve two alleged victims. He said he did not know whether Marsh had yet been arrested.

Several lawsuits filed in the past few months claimed that Marsh paid several teenage boys for sexual acts. The teens weren't named in the lawsuits. One said Marsh gave him drugs and alcohol.

Marsh is probably best known for planting 10 brightly painted Cadillacs nose down along a Panhandle highway in the 1970s.

His attorney, Kelly Utsinger, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
