JACKSONVILLE, FL -- The lead pastor of a First Coast Church is under arrest, accused of downloading child pornography on the church's computer.

Friday afternoon, JSO vice made a surprise visit to Eric Young's Northside home.

Young, 58, is the lead pastor of Ft. Caroline United Methodist Church.

Church members, who did not want us to share their names, tell us Young has been the pastor of the church for about a year.

They say about three weeks ago, Young was put on leave suddenly.

First Coast News has learned, in mid-June, Bellsouth alerted the Church that someone was visting porn websites.
