SUMMERVILLE, Ga. - The Chattooga County Sheriff's Office arrested a man Monday for allegedly sending a photo of his penis to a 13-year-old girl.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, 18-year-old Dakota Allen Malone, of Cedartown, Ga., called the girl about 30 times on June 23. The girl's mother also listened to some of the calls. She said a mysterious man on the other end was breathing heavily but never said anything.

Then, according to the affidavit, Malone texted the girl a picture of his penis. Investigators traced the number to Malone, who said he thought he sent the picture to somebody else. The girl did not know Malone.

Malone is charged with distributing obscene materials and electronically furnishing obscene materials to minors.
