Allen Todd Pisarich, owner of The Academy for Mixed Martial Arts in Ocean Springs, was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of sexual battery of a juvenile.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said Pisarich knew the young victim.
Ezell said investigators started looking at Pisarich, 48, in November after allegations of sexual abuse and inappropriate conduct with juveniles surfaced.
Pisarich was arrested by U.S. Marshals, and he could face more charges as the investigation moves forward, Ezell said.
