According to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office, MANOWAR guitarist Karl Logan has been charged with possessing child pornography.
Logan, 53, was arrested on August 9 in Charlotte, North Carolina and charged with six counts of third-degree exploitation of a minor.
Under N.C. General Statute §14-190.17A, "a person commits the offense of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor if, knowing the character or content of the material, he possesses material that contains a visual representation of a minor engaging in sexual activity."
A spokesperson for the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office told The Blast that a warrant was issued back in August for the guitarist's arrest and he was booked into the local jail. The Blast, which was launched last year by former TMZ news director Mike Walters, was the first to report news of the arrest.
Logan's bail was set at $35,000 and he has since bonded out.
Karl joined MANOWAR in 1994 as the replacement for David Shankle.
Prior to hooking up with MANOWAR, Logan played several bands in northeastern Pennsylvania, including ARC ANGEL and FALLEN ANGEL.
MANOWAR is in the middle of its "The Final Battle" farewell world tour, although it doesn't have any dates scheduled until February 2019.
