R&B star R.Kelly was arrested today (June 5, 2002), in Davenport, Florida, after being indicted on 21 felony counts of child pornography.

Police officers from Florida’s Polk County Division apprehended R. Kelly at his residence, after a fugitive warrant was issued for the singer.

The charges came after a videotaped incident of R. Kelly allegedly having sex with a minor was sent to the Chicago Sun-Times, which sparked an investigation by the Chicago Police Department.

Police interviewed several people and identified the girl on the 17-minute tape, while the FBI got involved to authenticate the videotape.

As a result, R. Kelly was hit with 21 felony counts and forced to post $750,000 bail to be released.

On June 13, 2008, R Kelly was found not guilty by Chicago jury on all counts.
