R. Kelly was met with a swarm of reporters as he arrived at a Chicago police station Friday night (Feb. 22) to be booked on 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse involving underage girls.

The singer, who arrived in a black van with his attorney Steve Greenberg and a few other men (and one woman), tried to keep his head low and refused to answer any questions as he made his way to the station.

One reporter asked Kelly “What do you say to the black women in Chicago?” to which his lawyer replied: “That’s an offensive question!”

Kelly did not respond to the reporters, and once he entered the building, he was handcuffed and led away by police. His arraignment is set for March 8th.

The indictment accuses Kelly of sexual acts with three children older than 13 but younger than 17. There is no age range listed for one of the alleged victims. The charges accuse Kelly of using force or the threat of force.
