DALLAS (August 27, 2013)--An American Airlines captain from Florida who was arrested on a Texas child pornography warrant remained in custody Tuesday.
Christopher Holmes was held Tuesday in the Broward County, Fla., Jail.
A complaint filed in Dallas says Holmes used chat services and e-mail to exchange pornographic images.
An American spokeswoman says Holmes, who's been with the carrier 23 years, was withheld from duty, but the Worth-based carrier didn't immediately elaborate Tuesday.
Investigators, who determined Holmes flew for American, put a "look out" on his travel profile.
Holmes was searched Aug. 16 while trying to board a flight from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to Mexico, and investigators say his laptop computer yielded child porn images.
He was arrested on Friday.
