Singer R. Kelly was arrested in Chicago on Thursday night on federal sex crime charges, sources told CNN.

Kelly is charged with sex trafficking in New York and attempting to influence a case in Atlanta, and was arrested while walking his dog, a source with knowledge of the arrest said.
His arrest comes after a 13-count indictment in the Northern District of Illinois that includes child pornography and obstruction of justice charges, said Joseph Fitzpatrick, assistant US attorney for the Northern District of Illinois
The New York Police Department, Homeland Security Investigation and other federal partners assisted in the arrest, a law enforcement source said.

He’s faced abuse allegations for decades

Until Thursday, Kelly was free on a $1 million bond set in February.
He has faced accusations of abuse, manipulations and inappropriate encounters with girls and young women for more than two decades.
In February, he was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four alleged victims, including three who prosecutors say were underage girls. The charges span from 1998 to 2010. Kelly pleaded not guilty.
He posted the $100,000 bail and left Chicago’s Cook County Jail less than three days after he was arrested. He was arrested and jailed again in March for failure to pay his ex-wife child support of $161,000.
