A Democrat candidate running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico was arrested on a felony stalking charge.

Santa Fe Police issued a warrant for David Alcon last month following accusations he sent graphic text messages to a woman he saw at a Halloween party.

Alcon was found at an Albuquerque apartment complex Friday, two weeks after authorities began their search.

He was previously convicted for stalking an ex-girlfriend back in 2007.

The morning before the court hearing Alcon sprinkled flower petals on the porch of the victim, an action the the judge called creepy and a clear act of obsession.

He was ordered to three years probation.

It is unknown whether Alcon will continue his congressional bid following the arrest and his second stalking offense.
