A Memphis radio and TV host and personality was arrested on child porn charges on yesterday (Nov 14) in connection with a picture of a minor engaged in a sex act posted to his Facebook.

Thaddeus Matthews, who is no newbie to controversy, is accused of posting a picture of a child, performing oral sex on an adult male, to his Facebook.

The photo was allegedly circulating through email of an alleged Memphis man engaged in a sexual act with the minor, though the location of the man is speculation, at this time.

Matthews claims he was trying to go after the perpetrator and that’s why he posted the pornographic image on his Facebook.

“There was a child that I felt was in danger,” Matthews claims adding “I went after the perpetrator of the child.”

Matthews claims that “no other station” went after who is the perpetrator of the particular child.

Still, the controversial Memphis talk show host has been charged with a crime.

Apparently, on Friday (Nov 9) someone walked in and alerted police at the Old Allen Station of a disturbing image she witnessed on Facebook.

MPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC) followed up on leads and on Tuesday, November 13, 2012, Memphis Police discovered that the same image was also posted on a Facebook page created by Matthews.

Thaddeus Matthews was told to report to ICAC for a follow-up investigation, which Matthews complied and apparently admitted to posted the picture depicting a child under the age of 5 years old performing oral sex on an adult male.

Thaddeus Matthews was arrested and charged with Sexual Exploitation of a Minor and other related charges.

He is currently out on bond as of this morning (Nov. 15) at which time he announced plans to divulge the reason behind his actions on his talk shows.

Meanwhile, ICAC is continuing their investigation to locate the source of the photo and those involved.
