FARMINGTON -- A South Davis Metro Fire Agency captain has been charged with sexually abusing a child.
South Davis Metro Fire Capt. Bradley Dean Freeze, 42, of Kaysville, was arrested Saturday and booked into Davis County Jail, said Kaysville Police Capt. Brent Ward.
Freeze appeared in 2nd District Court on Monday and has been charged with three first-degree felony counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child and two second-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
Freeze is being held in jail in lieu of $100,000 bail. His next court hearing is Aug. 22.
Police were contacted and began the investigation last week.
"The case is still under investigation and more charges could be filed," he said.
According to court documents, the girl, who is younger than 14, told her mother that Freeze had touched her inappropriately and took photos of her with his cell phone sometime between Sept. 1, 2010, and Aug. 3.
He also had the girl touch him inappropriately, court documents state.
Police seized Freeze's cell phone at the time of his arrest, according to the probable cause affidavit.
South Davis Metro Fire Chief Jim Rampton said Freeze, who has been with the fire department for at least 15 years, has been put on paid administrative leave.
