UPDATE: Manowar have issued a statement in response.

Manowar guitarist Karl Logan has been arrested for allegedly possessing child pornography, according to a report from The Blast. As they report, he was charged with six counts of third-degree sexual 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."

According to the Mecklenburg County Sherrif's Office, Logan was arrested on August 9 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
