Former Manowar guitarist Karl Logan was charged with allegedly posessing child pornography in October, and as Blabbermouth reports, he’s since been booked into jail following a hearing on Tuesday. Logan was booked at 6:47 PM on 5/28, according to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, and he’s awaiting an additional hearing.

Logan’s attorney Brad Smith told WSOC-TV that Logan has been “extremely cooperative with the investigation from the beginning, and he’ll continue to do that.” Smith also suggested there might be an explanation for the charges, saying, “you oftentimes do see with those that do end up pleading, there’s a direct correlation to something that happened in their childhood.”

Manowar issued a statement following Logan’s arrest, saying, “due to the fact that Karl and his attorneys are dealing with these issues, he will not perform with MANOWAR. The new album and upcoming tour will not be affected.” They’ve since replaced him with E.V. Martel.

Logan joined Manowar in 1994, replacing David Shankle. He’s been charged with six counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
