A judge in Los Angeles has issued a warrant for the arrest of singer Pat Boone.

The veteran crooner is a wanted man after missing a court appearance in connection to a cruise ship condo lawsuit.

According to TMZ.com, the 79-year-old is caught up in a messy legal case after purchasing an apartment on a luxury passenger ship. The company behind the project was sued by its investors and ordered to pay $800,000 in legal costs.

The payout was never fulfilled and now the lawyers involved are allegedly targeting the people who bought condos.

Boone was subpoenaed to appear in court but never showed up, prompting the presiding judge to issue an arrest warrant.

The singer is reportedly on vacation in Hawaii.
