(Daily Mail) R. Kelly was arrested in Chicago on Thursday after he was indicted by a grand jury on 13 federal counts, including sex crimes.

The singer, 52, already facing sexual abuse charges brought by Illinois prosecutors, is understood to have been detained while walking his dog at around 7pm.

U.S. Attorney’s office spokesman Joseph Fitzpatrick said the R&B star was taken into custody and was being held by federal authorities.
