WKU Police arrested 20-year-old Niles Woods outside of Southwest Hall Monday afternoon. Woods was taken to Warren County Regional Jail and was issued a $5,000 cash bond. He has since been released.

Woods was indicted by a grand jury for unlawful use of electronic means originating or received within the Commonwealth to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities, 1st degree sexual abuse and tampering with physical evidence.
