R. Kelly was arrested on federal sex charges Thursday night by Homeland Security Investigations agents and NYPD Public Safety Task Force. He was arrested in Chicago while walking his dog and taken into custody about 7 p.m. where he is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.
There are separate federal indictments filed in both Chicago and Brooklyn and it’s expected he will ultimately be brought to New York to face additional charges after his court appearance in his hometown of Chicago. A 13-count indictment was handed down earlier Thursday in federal court for the Northern District of Illinois and includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice
