A 37-year-old Massachusetts man was arrested on the S.C. State Fair grounds Wednesday morning by U.S. marshals on several sex offender charges.

Shawn Downer, who worked for a New York vendor providing food at local and state fairs around the country, is being held at the Lexington County Detention Center pending extradition to Massachusetts.

According to a statement from the U.S. Marshal's Service, the Holyoke, Mass., man was wanted on several sex offense charges including possession of child pornography, committing a sex offense against a child and failure to register as a sex offender in the state of Massachusetts.

He was taken into custody without incident before the State Fair opened to the public at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
