STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Ex-Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky has been arrested on new sex abuse charges brought by two new accusers.

Authorities say Sandusky was arrested and arraigned today.

The charges were brought after the new accusers were questioned by a grand jury. Both alleged victims were part of Sandusky's Second Mile charity. One claims he was assaulted in 1997 and the other in 2004.

A call seeking comment from Sandusky's lawyer, Joseph Amendola, was not immediately returned.
