Cops: Pace University official arrested for child porn possession

A Pace University administrator is under arrest after police say he was in possession of pornographic images of children during a sting operation yesterday.

Investigators say 62-year-old David Watson had arranged to meet the agent through an online chat room at a motel in Elmsford.

After the arrest, police executed a search warrant on his home, vehicle and a storage locker where they say they found more child pornography.

Pace University has said that Watson has been placed on administrative leave from his job as director of cultural events.
