Federal court documents allege a former Lexington firefighter charged with receiving child pornography downloaded videos and photographs while on duty at a city fire station.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Eric J. Bradley was arrested Wednesday in his Nicholasville home.
He was being held at the Fayette County Jail.
Federal investigators said they found about 50 videos and more than 100 photographs of child pornography on Bradley's laptop.
Bradley had been a firefighter with the city since 2000 but had been on paid administrative leave since July 3 before resigning on Thursday.
