An Army military police officer is accused of using the Internet to solicit a Virginia teenager to have sex.

David Michael Overstreet, 33, was stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas, awaiting deployment to Iraq when he was arrested Tuesday on charges of electronic solicitation and attempted sodomy, said First Sgt. Liz Scott of the Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office.

A 16-year-old Spotsylvania boy and his mother told police last month that an Army police officer contacted the boy online, Scott said.

Spotsylvania police obtained search warrants and seized computers from Overstreet's home in Prince George's County, Md.

Overstreet was being held at an El Paso jail while awaiting an extradition hearing to be transported to Virginia, Scott said.
