Manowar guitarist Karl Logan has been arrested for allegedly possessing child pornography. The Blast reports, the 53-year-old was arrested and charged with six counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. According to Mecklenburg County Sherrif’s Office, the arrest was made on August 9th in Charlotte, NC with a bail set at $35,000, which he has since bonded out.
Based on North Carolina’s General Statute §14-190.17A third degree sexual exploitation of a minor states:
“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.”
Manowar are currently in the middle of their Final Battle World Tour as they are currently booked for next year’s Hellfest Open Air. Logan has been with the group since 1994 and worked on albums from 1996’s Louder Than Hell up until their latest effort 2014’s Kings of Metal MMXIV. Neither the guitarist and band has issued a statement.
