REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Warrants have been issued for Village People's original policeman, Victor Willis, for failing to surrender for sentencing on drug charges.

The co-writer of "YMCA" and "In the Navy" missed another court date in Redwood City, Calif., Tuesday when he was to be sentenced for cocaine possession and probation violation, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday.

Willis reached a plea bargain in September that would have limited his prison term to no more than 16 months but the deal was canceled when he failed to show for his Oct. 20 sentencing, Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaff told the newspaper.

Fox TV's "America's Most Wanted" had a crew at the courthouse Tuesday and plans to revisit the case for the second time in February, Wagstaff said.
