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.

Minnesota Governor: Vikings’ Peterson should be suspended

FILE - In this Sept. 7, 2014, file photo, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson warms up for an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis. The Vikings benched Peterson for Sunday's game after his attorney said he had been indicted by a Texas grand jury on a charge of child abuse. Attorney Rusty Hardin says the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank his son. He says Peterson has cooperated with authorities and "used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son." Hardin says Peterson regrets the incident but never intended to harm the boy.

Gov. Mark Dayton called Peterson's actions "a public embarrassment" to the Vikings and the state of Minnesota. Vikings Sponsorship suspended & Petersen's court date moved.
