Investigators say a Flomaton High School's football star faces sex charges for an incident involving a 12-year-old girl.
Officers detained 18-year-old Tony Ellis shortly after school Tuesday.
Escambia County Sheriff Grover Smith said Ellis was charged with enticing a minor for immoral purposes, sodomy and sexual abuse.
He was released from custody on $150,000 bond.
Ellis, a star running back, was indicted by a grand jury last week.
Flomaton head football coach Doug Vickery declined to comment Tuesday. Messages left for Smith and Vickery were not immediately returned Wednesday.
