Third man arrested on charges of pornographic filming of minor

TAMPA — A Tampa man wanted in connection with the filming of a minor in a pornographic video was arrested by airport police late Tuesday night.

Michael Allen Storm, 44, was charged with two counts of using a child in a sexual performance, and two counts of promotion of a sexual performance by a child.

Storm, who is also known as "Dirty D," according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, was the third person arrested in connection with the porn video, which was filmed in 2007, officials said.

In February, police arrested Stephen Shawn Chastain, 36, and Ryan Jay Holtz, 24, and charged each of them with two counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child.

The FDLE said the three were present at a Tampa house when a 17-year-old girl was filmed in two porn videos.

According to an arrest warrant, Chastain and Storm were present when Holtz asked the girl if she had her fake identification. Storm 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, the warrant states.

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 Feb. 24. Both were released on $20,000 bail.

Storm's bail was set at $200,000.
