Here is a quote from their story on this case…

The LAPD took Sparks into custody at 8AM PT this morning on a felony warrant charging him with molestation. The alleged incident occurred in 1994. He is being held on $590,000 bail.

Shane Sparks is a choreographer in So You Think You Can Dance and a judge of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew. He also choreographed the Dreamgirls tour.

Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, says a criminal complaint was filed by the alleged victim, whose identity we are withholding because she was a minor at the time.

News. “It’s an underage girl. She was under 15 when the alleged crimes occurred. She is an adult now and came forward to authorities.”

I am shocked by this news, as I am sure you all are, I thought Lil’ Momma was the only train wreck on that show, but…I guessed wrong.

What is interesting is how old Shane Sparks is….the brother is 40, and does not look it at all.
