MAUI and PHILADELPHIA (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Maui man was arrested after a bounty hunter lured him to Philadelphia with the promise that he'd co-star in a movie with Jennifer Aniston.

Joshua Garlathy, 40, reportedly owed nearly $43,000 in child support.

Since authorities did not want to pay for travel expenses to Maui, a bounty hunter created a Facebook page pretending to be a movie producer, offering Garlathy the fake movie role. Garlathy was told he would be a guitar-playing bank robber alongside Aniston.

Authorities arrested Garlathy before he got off the plane in Pennsylvania.

Cameras were rolling for Garlathy's arrival, but it was for the bounty hunter's reality show pilot featuring dead-beat parents.
