Manowar Guitarist Karl Logan Arrested On Child Pornography Charges

Written by Tom Williams on October 26, 2018

Karl Logan, guitarist for American metal band Manowar, has been arrested and released on bail for allegedly possessing child pornography.

The Blast reports that 53-year-old Logan was arrested in Charlotte, North Carolina and charged with six counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

A spokesperson for the Mecklenburg County Sheriffs Office told The Blast that a warrant for Logan’s arrest was issued back in August, before he was booked into the local jail.

Logan, who joined Manowar in 1994, had his bail set at $35,000, but has since been bonded out.

Manowar are currently in the middle of their farewell world tour, and only recently asked Australian fans to help make a local tour happen.

The band released its latest studio album The Lord of Steel in 2012.
