FLINT, Mich. (AP) – Authorities in Michigan say a man fathered 14 children with 13 different women and owes more than $530,000 in unpaid child support.

The Flint Journal reports 42-year-old Thomas Frazier was jailed Thursday. Court records say he hasn’t made a support payment in six years.

The newspaper says the unemployed man could be held for 90 days if he doesn’t pay $27,900.

Frazier says he thinks he fathered only three of the children and that it’s unrealistic for authorities to expect him to pay child support that was $3,000 a month at one point.

Frazier remains held at the Genesee County Jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could speak for him.
