NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Metro Nashville Police have charged a 25-year-old man after posting an obscene video of a young girl to an online chat room.

An out-of-state undercover FBI agent was monitoring the chat and determined that the person responsible for the video was using the screen name RebalBorn615.

The man was later identified as Jonathon Ladd of Lebanon Pike in Hermitage. The girl in the video is actually the 6-year-old daughter of one of Ladd’s friends.

Police executed a search warrant on Ladd’s apartment on Friday where he admitted to participating in the conversation. Ladd told police he had not abused the girl and declined to answer further questions.

Ladd has been charged with particularly aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor. He is being held on $ 150,000 bond.
