COOKEVILLE – A Celina man was indicted Tuesday and accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with a minor.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation special agents started an investigation July 13 on Scott Brown, 27. During the investigation, they discovered in the span of more than a year, Brown had several sexual encounters with a teenage girl.

On Tuesday, a Clay County grand jury returned indictments that charged Brown with four counts of statutory rape. Authorities arrested him Thursday without incident and booked him in at the Clay County Jail on $80,000 bond.
