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.”
