Singer R. Kelly, already facing sexual abuse charges brought by Illinois prosecutors, was arrested Thursday in Chicago on a federal grand jury indictment listing 13 counts, including sex crimes and obstruction of justice. U.S. Attorney`s Office spokesman Joseph Fitzpatrick said the R&B singer was taken into custody about 7 p.m. local time and was being held by federal authorities. He was arrested after the indictment was handed down earlier Thursday in federal court for the Northern District of Illinois.
