(CBS) STAFFORD, Va. - A Virginia police captain is under arrest after he allegedly took a teenage boy he met online to a Motel 6.

Capt. Brent Mitchell Taylor, 46, was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, reports the Washington Post. Taylor is a 24-year veteran of the Fredericksburg Police Department.

The arrest took place early Sunday morning after deputies say they spotted a 17-year-old male walking along the road. When asked what he was doing, the teen said he'd locked himself out of a Motel 6 room rented by another man.

According to CBS affiliate WUSA, the deputies took the teen back to the motel and waited until Taylor returned.

Officials say that Taylor met the teen on the internet and picked him up at his home in Fairfax, Va., before taking him to the motel.

Taylor has been placed on administrative leave, reports the Post.
