KINGSPORT — A Kingsport man has been arrested after a DVD he loaned to individuals was allegedly found to contain child porn, then abruptly handed over to police.

Elmer J. Williams, 71, of 2116 Steadman Street, was taken into custody on Thursday morning by Kingsport police. He was booked into the city jail with his bond set at $20,000.

Sullivan County Assistant District Attorney Julie Canter reports Williams was indicted by a grand jury on Tuesday. He faces 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
