Tampa man arrested in connection with filming a minor in a porn video

TAMPA — Law enforcement officials issued a warrant for a two men who they say filmed a minor in two pornographic videos, and on Wednesday, two police departments arrested Stephen Shawn Chastain, 36, and Ryan Jay Holtz, 24, and charged them with two counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said they were present at a Tampa house in 2007 when a 17-year-old girl was filmed in two porn videos.

According to an arrest warrant, Chastain and Michael Storm, also known as "Dirty D," were present when Holtz asked the girl if she had her fake identification. Storm, 44, gave her a release form to sign and said he knew she was only 17, the warrant states. Chastain said he would pay her $500.

They then filmed two videos, one at the house and the other at Fantasy Land Adult Video, FDLE officials said.

Chastain was arrested by Tampa police, and Holtz was arrested by St. Petersburg police Wednesday. Both were released on $20,000 bail.

State records list Chastain as chief executive of the Lone Knight Productions Inc., which he registered in Florida in 2005.
