KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) -- A member of the Klamath Falls City Council has been arrested on a charge of sexual abuse of a boy under the age of 6.

The Herald and News reports (http://bit.ly/vFI1Bt ) that 60-year-old Gregory Alvin Taylor was booked Wednesday at the Klamath County jail and released after posting 10 percent of the $100,000 bail.

Klamath County District Attorney Ed Caleb said Taylor is accused of abusing the boy March 27 in Corvallis. He says it was reported to the Corvallis police, and state investigators were called in because of Taylor's position as an elected official.

Taylor teaches information technology at Klamath Community College. He was elected to the council in 2010. Last year he filed to run as a Republican for the Oregon House but later withdrew.
