WENTWORTH, NC (AP) -

A man has been arrested for refusing to leave the Rockingham County jail.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that 37-year-old Rodney Dwayne Valentine has been charged with trespassing.

Valentine was released from the jail Saturday morning after being behind bars since May 22. The sheriff's office says he asked them to drive him to a local motel and they refused.

Deputies charged Valentine with second-degree trespassing when he had refused to leave the jail by early Saturday afternoon.

He's being held on $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 9.

It was not clear if he has a lawyer.
