JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

Madison police have arrested a man accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a minor.

Eric Law, a WLBT meteorologist since 2004, is charged with two counts of sexual battery and two counts of gratification of lust.

Madison police say the arrest is the result of an allegation that Law had inappropriate contact with a girl under the age of 16.

Judge Dale Danks set bond at $50,000 per count, for a total of $200,000.

"Eric Law has been suspended until further notice," said WLBT News Director Wilson Stribling.
