Manowar - Guitarist Arrested On Child Pornography Charges


In the midst of their farewell tour, The Final Battle World Tour, Karl Logan, Manowar's guitarist since 1994, has been arrested and bonded out for "the offense of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor", as reported by Mike Walters, TMZ's former news director, on his new celebrity news agency, The Blast. Logan was arrested on August 9th in Charlotte, North Carolina, and was given a $35,000 bail to which he bonded out. Manowar has yet to respond publicly to the arrest.

The full report reads: "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.

Logan's bail was set at $35,000 and he has since bonded out."
