    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.

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.
