Embattled R&B singer R. Kelly arrested on child pornography and obstruction of justice charges in Chicago...

From CBS Local 

R. Kelly was arrested in Chicago Thursday night on 13 new federal charges including child pornography and obstruction of justice.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the North District of Illinois confirmed the R&B singer has been indicted by a federal grand jury on 13 counts of child pornography, enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity and obstruction of justice.

Kelly’s publicist originally confirmed that the singer had been arrested on charges of sex trafficking as originally reported, but the U.S. Attorney’s Office said that was incorrect.

The singer is in federal custody in Chicago.

The indictment was returned by the federal grand jury Thursday afternoon, and he was arrested around 7 p.m. No exact location of the arrest was provided.
