Austin Jones has been arrested on child pornography charges. The popular YouTube sensation, who boasts a whopping half million subscribers and is known for his acapella renditions of pop songs, has been charged with two counts of production of child pornography.

The 24-year-old is currently in federal custody since his arrest at the Chicago O-Hare Airport on Monday and will appear in court on Wednesday for a bond hearing. He will remain in detention until then as prosecutors argue he's a "risk to the community and may also flee."

Prosecutors allege Jones allegedly pressured a young woman around 14 or 15-years-old into sending him videos of her genitalia in order to "prove" she was his biggest fan. This, according to court documents.
