A former Florida Ku Klux Klan leader sought in his home state for the sexual battery of a 16-year-old girl has been arrested for panhandling in Canada, authorities said.

Donald Spivey was arrested Wednesday in the community of Spences Bridge, about 120 miles northeast of Vancouver, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said. A Canadian immigration adjudicator scheduled a closed hearing Friday to determine whether Spivey should be deported to the United States for entering Canada illegally.
