The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was already under indictment in Chicago for aggravated sexual assault and abuse, which are state charges. He also caught 11 more felony charges in May.

The new 13 count indictment includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Kelly was arrested around 7 p.m., while he was out walking his dog near his home at…wait for it…Trump Tower.
