An East Ridge man was arrested after police responded to a disorder at his apartment, only to discover that a 16-year-old girl was staying with him and was pregnant with his child.
John Mark Chastain, 26, told police he could not deal with her any longer and wanted her out of his apartment.
However, at this point, the girl told police she was three months pregnant with Chastain's child.
After admitting to sleeping with the girl, Chastain was charged with statutory rape. Bond was set at $10,000.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 2.
