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 .
MANOWAR is in the middle of its "The Final Battle" farewell world tour.
