LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The East Texas News obtained a police affidavit that said Brian Johnson was taking inappropriate pictures of young children in a local store the day he was arrested.   He has now been charged with two additional counts of Improper Photography or Visual Recording.

The first additional count stems from video police obtained from a digital camera where the affidavit said, "Brian takes the camera and kneels down and places the camera under the dress of an approximately nine year old female child exposing her panties..."  This incident reportedly occured in a Lufkin Dollar General Store just two days before he was arrested.  

In the second count, the police affidavit stated, "Brian takes the camera and kneels down and places the camera underneath the skirt of a white female who appears to be approximately five years of age and video records under her skirt with the camera."  The security video from Insta-Cash pawn in Lufkin was taken March 23, the same day Johnson was arrested.
