Crowley detectives say they have arrested a Lafayette man on charges of molesting a juvenile.

Police were able to arrest George at his Lafayette home without incident.

George has been charged with molestation of a juvenile, and he was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.

He was later transferred to the Acadia Parish Jail, and his bond has been set at $50,000.
