Police entered the WFAA (Dallas) studios and arrested one of the station's employees on child sex abuse charges.
The Denton County Sheriff's Department arrested WFAA supervisor of information technology Mike Chappell while he was at work Tuesday afternoon.
Chappell was booked on three counts of indecency with a child and one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child from an alleged incident in June 2008. He was also charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child for an alleged offense in June 2011.
Word is that the charges involve a family member.
This isn't the first time Chappell was busted on sex charges.
Records show Chappell has a prior arrest history including similar charges.
In June 2012, Chappell was arrested on a charge of injury to a child, elderly or disabled person with bodily injury. Court records show the alleged incident occurred in February 2011. The case was later dismissed.
He was arrested again in May 2014 on a charge of indecency with a child — sexual contact, stemming from an alleged incident in June 2008. The case is set to be heard in front of a jury at the end of August.
WFAA management has no comment on his latest arrest, or how the hell is was still employed at the station after his prior arrests.
